First Aid for the Psychiatry Clerkship
I got this book to study during my 3rd year psych rotation. The chapters are short enough that I can read one during my down time yet comprehensive enough that it is definitely worth the time. Highly recommend, especially the psychopharmacology chapter!
Case Files Psychiatry
Perfect book for my Psychiatry NBME exam. I buy case files for each of my medical rotations and this was one of the better ones. It was a very easy read and one that even an average consumer can pick up and read. The material is very relevant to the clerkship and even includes DSM-V in most of the cases.
Lange Q & A Psychiatry, Edition 10
Great review book! Very helpful on psychiatry clerkship preparing for the shelf exam. Case scenarios are similar to shelf exam style. Explanations to questions are thorough and well written. The broad range of topics is very complete, from adult to pediatric psychiatry, to pharm management and legal and ethical issues and the two complete practice exams are very useful.
