Although several books on the administration and scoring procedures for tests are available to neuropsychologists, the Handbook of Normative Data for Neuropsychological Assessment is the first reference to present and critique the available normative data for the most common neuropsychological tests: Trail Making, Color Trails, Stroop, Auditory Consonant Trigrams, Boston Naming, Verbal Fluency Tests, Rey-Osterreith Complex Figure, Rey Auditory Verbal Learning, Hooper Visual Organization Test, Seashore Rhythm, Speech Sounds Perception, Tactile Performance, Finger Tapping, Grip Strength (Dynamometer), Grooved Pegboard, Category Test, and the Wechsler Memory Scale (WMS, WMS-R and WMS III). Informative tables throughout the book guide clinicians to the sets of normative data that are best suited to their needs, depending on the age, sex, educational level, handedness, IQ and ethnicity of their patients, and highlight the advantages associated with using data for comparative purposes. Those using the book have the option of reading the authors' critical review of the normative data for a particular test, or simply turning to the appropriate data locator table for quick test interpretation. This book will be welcomed by practitioners, researchers, teachers and graduate students as a unique and valuable contribution to the practice of neuropsychology. No other volume offers such an effective framework for the critical evaluation of normative data for neuropsychological tests.
The authors host a website, www.NormativeData.com, which is a resource site for clinicians and researchers interested in norms and normative research. They post corrections to the book, updates of recent normative studies not included in the first edition, and other announcements and links of interest to the neuropsychologist.

"The authors offer the clinician a valuable service by providing a comprehensive review of demographic variables obtained from numerous studies and organizing them into one handbook.... This volume can be used as a handbook for graduate students as well as seasoned professionals to improve the quality, reliability, and validity of test interpretation and ultimately improve the utility of neuropsychological reports." --The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

This reviewer wholeheartedly recommends it for purchase; the tables alone justify the price." --Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology
"Help has come at last! Here is the long-awaited neuropsychological test norms collection yearned for by many neuropsychology clinicians....I suspect that test users who begin consulting this Handbook will become happily addicted."--From the Foreword, Muriel D. Lezak
"This comprehensive volume is a giant step forward in neuropsychological assessment and will be an indispensable resource for neuropsychological practice."--Russell Woessner, MossRehab Hospital
"The Handbook is a valuable and well-written addition to the literature that should find its way onto the reference shelves of practicing neuropsychologists...There is a lot to be gained from consulting this book. In readability, utility, and practicality, it goes way beyond the norms."--Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society Vol. 7, Iss.3
