Psychiatry: A clinical handbook is the second book in a series which began with Rheumatology. These will form an essential resource for medical students who need an introduction, understanding and overview of specific subjects. As well as serving as an excellent revision tool for undergraduate examination purposes, it is envisaged that this book will be hugely popular amongst junior doctors with an interest or a job in Psychiatry or General Practice; GPs; intercalating medical students; and potentially Psychiatry trainees studying for qualification exams. Content is displayed in bullet point format with full use of colour throughout and an attractive design. Mnemonics are implemented as a study tool to simplify retention of long lists. Carefully constructed tables and diagrams are used to summarise key points and these go down particularly well with the so called 'visual learners'. Furthermore, the use of boxes in the form of 'OSCE tips' for example, is particularly constructive for highlighting key pieces of information likely to be over represented in medical examinations. Self-assessment questions provided at the end of each chapter will enable a means of consolidation as well as checking that users have understood and grasped the core material adequately. Written by a final-year medical student, a newly-qualified junior doctor and an experienced consultant psychiatrist and senior lecturer, the book combines a reader-friendly writing style with coverage of the material through clinical experience of a professional in the field. Further material, in the form of 30 Single Best Answer (SBA) and 50 Extended Matching Questions (EMQs) appears at the end of the book, together with answers.
