To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I got this book when I needed to re-certify for my board, and was looking for Self-Assessment CMEs. As the other review mentioned, you'd still need to pay 80 dollars on NEI website to take the post tests in order to claim 16 SA CME credits. They are broken up into 10 post tests (one per chart), and each post tests is 1.5-2.25 CME. You can display and save/print/email your CME certificates when you pass each test (>70%). All the post test questions and answers/explanations are included in the book. I think this is a reasonable amount of work and money for 16 SA CME compared with other approved products on the ABPN list.
This book is really easy to read, is colorful on the pages, and is a great book for those of us who are learning to prescribe psychopharmacology. Stephen Stahl is the master of all things psychopharmacology! Anything he writes or edits is worth buying.
Straight forward and succinct but packed full of great information with the latest data. But this is only for the book, in order to get the CME’s, it’s another 80 dollars to take the exam on their website.
