Well purchased this for my last Nsg class. I've only opened it approx. 3-4 times due to not really needing it. Those few times however the book didn't seem that bad if not a repeat of the other psych textbook I bought (don't really see a point in rereading the same info.) This reminds me more of the DSM-IV giving you more key points on the different types of diagnoses a pt might have. gave it an average rating due to not really caring for psych and not really using or needing the book. (A few of my classmates swear by it...so it is based more on personal opinion.)
It is a very good book. It's easy to understand. They provide example of a lot of things writhing the text. There are also tables that further explain certain topics. At the end of every chapter you will find key points to remember, critical thinking questions, and chapter review questions. I found that that helped me a lot in being sure I understood what was read.
MORE THAN SATISFIED!!!
My psych nursing class doesn't start until Spring 2011 and I just ordered the textbook today; so it's hard to write a proper review at this time. However, I did read over the whole file and I can honestly say that it looks like it will be EXTREMELY helpful to me and I gladly accept any and all help towards a great grade! Also, received the file much quicker than I had expected!
