Examination Notes in Psychiatry 4th Edition (Arnold Publication)

"None of the textbooks cover the history of psychiatry, as it's new on the syllabus. So I read this, which does just that."
Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry (Oxford Handbooks Series)

"I learnt the section at the front on definitions (there are so many terms for abnormal movement!), but otherwise, just reference."
The Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines

"The type-face of the new edition is a real mistake, but it still has really useful tables. Mainly reference, but read the whole psychosis chapter for info on different antipsychotics."

"I didn't read this. I did read around six months' worth of BJP, which was useful. There were a lot of questions on the process of research, and the best way to learn it is to read lots of it."
