FOCUS Psychiatry Review, Volume 2, contains 400 new board-type multiple-choice questions derived from material in the annual FOCUS Self-Assessment Examinations that can help psychiatrists prepare for examinations and identify areas for further study. These new questions, developed by the FOCUS Self-Assessment 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. APA is accredited by ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. APA designates this educational activity for a maximum of 50 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Program start date: February 2011 Program end date: February 2014

I purchased this book as a review for the 2013 ABPN psychiatry MOC exam. It was an EXCELLENT review. This is a question and answer book, a format that I find particularly useful for reviewing. The questions were clinically relevant, answers were up to date and there was a concise explanation for each answer, and each question had references cited. I looked up many of the references to read for further information. Topics include psychopharmacology, all manner of DSM-IV diagnoses, psychotherapies, genetics, ethics - in short, topics that were covered on the MOC exam. The book did not include topics that aren't included in the MOC, such as neurology.

The price of the book includes up to 50 hours of Category I CME; in the book I bought, the current end date for claiming CME is February 2014. I paid $56 for this book. If you think about it, the price is worth it just for the CME. Other reviewers mentioned they felt it was too expensive - the price seems to have decreased since then.

The topics covered in the book turned out to be right on track for what was in the MOC exam; there were a number of test questions that I specifically recalled having read about in this book. I passed.

This is a great resource if the purpose of this purchase is to prepare well for Psychiatry MOC exam. It is concise. To the point and the questions really help to brush up all the brushing up that is needed to update your knowledge. It addresses all the areas in the field of Psychiatry that are relevant, pertinent to a practicing clinician. Its main emphasis is on updates in psychopharmacology, dementia and related conditions, clinical advances in treatment of substance abuse/dependence, and HIV related issues etc. It, however also does not neglect psychotherapy advances in treating myriad psychiatric disorders. It does not waste your time and energy on topics that make very little or no appearance on the MOC exam in Psychiatry (Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Neurology, Neuroanatomy and Neuro-imaging, Molecular Biology... etc). If there is a need for further clarification on a particular topic, PRN use of Kaplans' "Synopsis of Psychiatry" should suffice. It also has the added bonus of earning 40 Category A CME Credits at no additional cost. That makes it a financially sound investment in addition to being an almost, "all you need" resource to prepare and succeed in Psychiatry MOC exam.

Bottom Line: A great resource for Psychiatry MOC exam preparation (and success). 40 Category A CME Credits that can be earned at no additional cost are an extra that is not trivial by any standard.

Seriously. Don't waste your money on anything else. The authors of the book indicate that they follow the published content outline of the ABPN MOC exam - and they aren't kidding. They cover absolutely everything that is on that outline. My only gripe is that it probably was a bit heavier on some specialized areas - e.g., trauma - than warranted, but this was still useful review. I got this book 10 days before the exam. Set aside a 3-day weekend to study the questions - and, more importantly, the answers - and to practice. Also, used my old text books/online content to read more where I was particularly weak or still didn't understand the correct answer. The result? 92% correct on the actual exam. Enough said.

I think this is a great book for maintenance of certification. I would give it five stars if it contained more questions. It makes sense because FOCUS is designed specifically for maintenance of certification. They follow the ABPN outline closely. And they give 50 CME to boot, which is a great deal for the price of the book. However, the CME expire February 2014. I've read other reviews where they say the APA extends the deadline on the CME, so maybe they will for this one.

Best MOC course out there. The questions helped a lot . Did them multiple times and this material is high yield. Great read with a busy private practice schedule. A must read for people who learn through problem oriented presentations.
