"The Board Review Series" (BRS) is aimed at providing basic knowledge as it relates to clinical situations and is used primarily by medical students studying for the United States Medical Licensing Examinations (USMLE). "BRS Behavioral Science" covers material on this subject that is addressed on USMLE Step 1. Previous editions of this volume have been quite popular with medical students. As in its previous editions, "BRS Behavioral Science" is written in outline format to provide an efficient method of studying Behavioral Science for USMLE. A major focus of books in the "BRS" series is to provide experience to students in answering USMLE-style questions. To this end, the book contains over 700 such questions with accompanying annotated answers. An exam follows each chapter and a Comprehensive Exam is included at the end of the book. "The book covers the most current information in psychiatry in 26 chapters, but the best part is the collection of 700 USMLE-style clinical vignette questions with detailed explanations. The unique structural element is a "Typical Board Question" that begins each chapter with a clinical vignette providing an example of how the subject is tested. Each chapter ends with USMLE-style questions and answers with detailed explanations." "This is a high quality book that will be very useful to students taking the USMLE, as well as to medical staff as a review."
