Book reviews can be published in a variety of sources such as newspapers or journals. When citing book reviews, the general formatting is reliant on the source material in which the book review is published, but the following information should be always added after the title of the review in the format of Review of Title of book, by Author's First and Last Name.

Chicago does not have a specific format for how to reference case studies as an individual resource - the formatting is reliant on the source material in which the case study is found, e.g. for a case study featured in a book, you would reference the book.
If required for your assignment, the case study can be specifically mentioned in your text, just add the standard notes for the source. As the case study is something specific within a larger resource, it is recommended that you add a page number to your notes to help the reader locate it.
To cite a data set, the minimum elements include the name of the dataset, a descriptive phrase or record locator (such as a data marker or accession number) indicating the part of the dataset being cited or explaining the nature of the reference, an access date, and a URL. In bibliographies, list under the name of the dataset. For example:
1. GenBank (for RP11-322N14 BAC [accession number AC087526.3]; accessed July 6, 2018), http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore/19683167.

Cite the patents under the names of the creators, followed by Patent Name, Patent no, filing date and issuing date, and the source from which the patent information can be retrieved. For example:
1. Masanori Iizuka and Hideki Tanaka, Cement Admixture, US Patent 4,586,960, filed June 26, 1984, and issued May 6, 1986, https://patents.google.com/patent/US4586960.

To cite a standard published by a specific industry group or by a national or international standards organization, include the name of the organization, the title of the standard (in italics), an edition or other identifying number or label, and publication information. Standards consulted online should include a URL. In the notes, standards can be cited by title; in a bibliography entry, list under the group or organization, even if that entity is also the publisher.
