The Study Guide is made up of 203 questions divided into 34 individual quizzes of 5-10 questions each that correspond to chapters in the Textbook. Questions are followed by an Answer Guide that references relevant text (including the page number) in the Textbook to allow quick access to needed information. Each answer is accompanied by a discussion that not only addresses the correct response but also explains why other responses are not correct. The Study Guide's companion, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Geriatric Psychiatry has been revised and updated while continuing the tradition of providing both scholar and clinician with the practical skills and knowledge required for understanding mental disorders in later life. It offers an authoritative review of a wide range of topics written by leaders in geriatric psychiatry, gerontology, geriatric medicine, and geriatric nursing, offering a solid grounding in both basic science and clinical applications. It is enhanced by a wide array of quick-reference tables and charts, lists of key points, and extensive references and suggested readings that can help clinicians and students at all levels learn more about individual topics.
