When Handbook of Normative Data for Neuropsychological Assessment was published in 1999, it was the first book to provide neuropsychologists with summaries and critiques of normative data for neuropsychological tests. The Second Edition, which has been revised and updated throughout, presents data for 26 commonly used neuropsychological tests, including: Trailmaking, Color Trails, Stroop Color Word Interference, Auditory Consonant Trigrams, Paced Auditory Serial Addition, Ruff 2 and 7, Digital Vigilance, Boston Naming, Verbal Fluency, Rey-Osterrieth Complex Figure, Hooper Visual Fluency, Design Fluency, Tactual Performance, Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised, Rey Auditory-Verbal learning, Hopkins Verbal learning, WHO/UCLA Auditory Verbal Learning, Benton Visual Retention, Finger Tapping, Grip Strength (Dynamometer), Grooved Pegboard, Category, and Wisconsin Card Sorting tests. In addition, California Verbal learning (CVLT and CVLT-II), CERAD ListLearning, and selective Reminding Tests, as well as the newest version of the Wechsler Memory Scale (WMS-III and WMS-IIIA), are reviewed. Locator tables throughout the book guide the reader to the sets of normative data that are best suited to each individual case, depending on the demographic characteristics of the patient, 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 a quick reference to the relevant data tables in the Appendices. The Second Edition includes reviews of 15 new tests. The way the data are presented has been changed to make the book easier to use. Meta-analytic tables of predicted values for different ages (and education, where relevant) are included for nine tests that have a sufficient number of homogeneous datasets. No other reference offers such an effective framework for the critical evaluation of normative data for neuropsychological tests. Like the first edition, the new edition will be welcomed by practitioners, researchers, teachers, and graduate students as a unique and valuable contribution to the practice of neuropsychology.

Review:


"This edition provides updated references and coverage of additional neuropsychological instruments that many clinicians will find useful. For practicing neuropsychologists at any level or students in training, this book is a worthwhile investment." --Doody's


From reviews of the first edition: ". . .a valuable and well-written addition to the literature that should find its way onto the reference shelves of practicing neuropsychologists. The book will be a useful educational tool . . . There is a lot to be gained from consulting this book. In readability, utility, and practicality, it goes way beyond the norms." -Russell M. Bauer, PhD, in JOURNAL OF THE INTERNATIONAL NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL SOCIETY


From reviews of the first edition: "Overall, Mitrushina et al. have made a substantial contribution with their text, and it nicely complements other thorough overviews of neuropsychology authored by Lezak or Spreen and Strauss. It is concise, timely, comprehensive, and cogent, and it holds great utility for the practice of clinical neuropsychology . . . Let us hope they continue this good work as additional data emerge." -Michael R. Basso, PhD, in NEUROPSYCHIATRY, NEUROPSYCHOLOGY, AND BEHAVIORAL NEUROLOGY


From reviews of the first edition: "Should neuropsychologists purchase this volume? The answer is an unqualified yes. The book is a very valuable asset to any neuropsychology collection. This reviewer wholeheartedly recommends it for purchase; the tables alone justify the price . . . The authors are due a great deal of credit for gathering together material that most of us would understand as a multi-year project. In examining this book in even a cursory way, the prospective buyer will see that the effort needed to bring it to fruition is humbling." -Kenneth M. Adams, PhD, in JOURNAL OF CLINICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL NEUROPSYCHOLOGY
