I'm studying for my LCSW and purchased this to supplement my other study material. This is not correct. Too many errors to count are what I've found. Will try to get a refund, but I wanted to post this to save others. I missed questions on a practice test because of incorrect information.
   In this DSM-5 Overview, the description of obsessive-compulsive personality ...
The description of obsessive-compulsive personality disorder is the same as the description of obsessive-compulsive disorder. There are two disorders. This is a mistake.
   Good Summary
I enjoy the format and information. I was disappointed to learn that there were no code numbers. I didn't know that before I ordered it. It's a good tool.
   Great College cheatsheet helper!
This was not something my daughter asked me to do. Tjis was a suggested add on when I read the book. The other students wanted to know where my daughter had ordered it. The books are worth more than the added couple of bucks. It stays in great shape because it is laminated.
   Good Reference for Psych
The standard criteria that always come at the end of the DSM-V criteria are 'these symptoms are not better explained by another disorder or drug'. Quality descriptions of psychiatric disorders are provided by cutting out all of the fluff. I use it as a quick reference when doing case studies because I'm in Psych NP school. Once you have more information about icd-10 codes, differentials, etc., you'll be able to crack open the DSM. I think my wife will use it more than I will as she's studying for her exam which covers a lot of psych content.
   not as useful as I expected
The only information I have to refer to is the DSM-5, which is what the information only refers to. I wanted something that made me feel better about the criteria for the most seen disorders, not a summary like the ones I already have to write for graduate school. Don't spend money on this.
   Not for a professional who needs a quick reference with codes and criteria.
A waste of money. I was expecting a summary of codes and criteria. If you are taking abnormal psychology for the first time. This may be able to serve your needs if you are looking for a laminated equivalent of Cliffnotes. Don't waste your money if you are looking for a quick reference to fill out your bill.
   No DSM V Dx codes included. Dumb
The overall quality of the product, laminate and useful information would have gotten 4 or even 5 stars, but why did they not include the diagnostic codes next to each dx category? Many people who have failed to memorize all the codes will have to go to the book or manual to get these. Shouldn't have been necessary. So not a quick guide. The company should ask what were you thinking.
   Very disappointed. Is not accurate for the DSM 5 changes
Very sad. The DSM 5 changes are not accurate. It will work if you are a beginner in the class. If you are a therapist, don't worry.
