UW does a good job in explaining them.

what also helped me was Behavioral Science Kaplan Video Lecture which I had seen for Step 1. But that was DSM-IV. And now its new DSM-V which you must know. There are some minute differences in the diagnostic criteria in DSM-V which is covered by UW well. But the overall concept of PTSD, ACUTE STRESS and depression etc remains same.

Good luck.
