Reviews

“This is an excellent study source for geriatric psychiatry. Most geriatric board questions are structured as cases so the format makes sense. Additionally, it walks readers through the additional step of applying the information learned to real world cases. … This is a superb study source and reference. It has been well thought out and is successful in obtaining its goals.” (Danielle Anderson, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2018)
