Sixty high-yield psychiatry cases helps students sharpen their diagnostic and problem-solving skills The Case Files series is an award-winning learning system proven to improve shelf-exam scores and clerkship performance.

  • Incompatible with iPhone X/Viewing Issues

    By fabulousnurse
    This review is based purely on the fact that I cannot view all of the content on my iPhone X. Case questions are often not displayed and require the app to be restarted, or do not show the entire question making it impossible for you to get any sort of educational value out of it since it is incomplete. Very frustrating. This app is obviously not compatible with iPhone X, but the App Store indicates that it is. Waste of money.
  • Excellent

    By VeronicaLeigh
    Helped me prepare for boards far better than the big name costly review courses. This is the best app to practice questions that are similarly presented on the exam. I passed the first time thanks to this app. Worth every dime. In fact, it's worth more as I don't don't have to listen to personal stories like I did with the presenters on the CDs.
