Horrible Narration and Factually WRONG Content

This book is an absolute waste of money. The narrator has no clue how to pronounce the terms or how they should be used in a sentence, making it an impossible book to comprehend and learn from. I also came across multiple factually wrong statements which I had to look up in the original DSM-5 book to confirm. I would definitely NOT recommend this book to anyone.

Just pure garbage!

I don't understand how a company with only 1 published book can produce such garbage if that's their only focus. Not only were there tons of contradictions and misinformation in relation to all of the other material I have been studying from, but the narrator has absolutely no clue what they are reading, or how to pronounce 80% of the medical terms. A text-to-speech reader would have done better.

The practice questions they present you with are complete garbage, and the amount of incorrect information presented in this book is mind blowing. It is unbelievable how poorly written this book was, and it's very evident Janet Colbert knows absolutely nothing about this topic.

FYI, the term "Mental Retardation" used in this book is highly offensive and is no longer used to refer to persons with any sort of "intellectual disability" in the DSM-5.

Again, pure garbage.

Pathetic...

The number of inaccurate explanations for the mental disorders reviewed in this book is mind boggling. I was going to use this book as a tool to help sharpen my knowledge, but with over 7 years of work experience, I can surely say this book is written at an amateur level at best and the obvious fact that the narrator is not familiar with medical terms makes it even worse to listen to.

On top of that there is a great deal of information that is just not covered that is highly relevant and key for proper diagnosis. In hind sight, this book (just under 6 hours) barely scratches the surface when it comes to the necessary and relevant information for proper diagnosis requirements.

Inconsistent information

I don't feel the content in this book is up to date at all, some of the diagnosis content seemed outdated. I also found that lots of key information that is used to make a solid diagnosis is not covered for a good amount of the disorders.

Not thorough enough for a study guide in my opinion.

Not Useful At All

This is certainly not useful as a study guide, it only gives you a broad outline of the disorders and doesn't even touch the necessary information used in making a diagnosis.

Unbearable Narration

The narrator can hardly pronounce any of the medical terms correctly and the content is elementary at best.

Author / Narrator Have NO Clue

Being a study guide, I expected to refresh my memory on the important aspects needed for a proper diagnosis, but was disappointed in the lack of content provided and with the dismal narration.

Wrong Information after Wrong Information

I was shocked to hear so many incorrect diagnosis criterion throughout this book along with a tremendous lack of supporting information that is absolutely necessary in order to help make a valid diagnosis. The material that this audio book was narrated from is certainly dated and not relevant to the methods used today.

Not thorough at all

This book just gives you a brief overview of some of the more common disorders, and does not delve deep enough to give you the bare minimum needed to make a proper diagnosis. I also found lots of errors throughout the presentation and the reader was not familiar with medical terminology what so ever. Very poorly put together in my opinion.

Too low level

Marketed as a study aid - this book is very superficial and targeted as way too low a level. Not worth listening too
