FOCUS Psychiatry Review, Volume 2, DSM-5® Revised Edition, contains 400 board-type multiple-choice questions derived from material in the annual FOCUS examinations, which can help psychiatrists prepare for examinations and identify areas for further study. This edition has been updated for consistency with DSM-5®. These questions, developed by the FOCUS Editorial Board, are consistent in form and process with the questions used by high-stakes examinations. They cover important clinical areas of psychiatric practice and closely follow the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) outline of topics for the recertification examination in psychiatry.
FOCUS Psychiatry Review is designed to test current knowledge and its clinical application. The workbook is flexible in format, allowing readers to use the educational approach that works best for them. Readers can review resource materials prior to answering questions, or they can use the workbook to review the references listed in the critiques after scoring test sections. The workbook will be useful for anyone committed to lifelong learning in the field—practicing psychiatrists, psychiatric residents, and psychiatrists preparing for examinations.
