There are two useful books for the psychiatry rotation: First Aid for Psychiatry and the Lange Q&A Psychiatry book. The First Aid book offers concise information while the the Lange book provides key question and answer sets to help you practice for the Shelf and the Step 2 CK. We’ll focus on the First Aid book in this review.
- Illustrations and management algorithms
- Updates to the medications, depression/anxiety, and child psychiatry sections
- And M
We’d also highly recommend getting the Lange question book as the NBME questions are more reflected in these questions than in the questions found in UWorld or other question banks.
Amazon.com offer’s both used and new versions of these books above if you’re looking to purchase one!
