Review:

"A single source for essential, detailed information on the past, present, and future of intellectual and cognitive assessment practices. The table of contents provides an objective sweep of all major theories, tests, and evaluation procedures at a glance; the expertise of the chapter authors results in a work that is consistently outstanding. The third edition reflects the latest efforts in clinical inquiry that explore cognitive abilities and processes as they relate to the real world. It emphasizes cross-cultural issues in assessment and incorporates new approaches and instruments related to learning and developmental problems. This is an essential text for graduate-level assessment courses."--Elaine Fletcher-Janzen, EdD, NCSP, ABPdN, Department of School Psychology, Chicago School of Professional Psychology

"Psychological services must be built on ecological assessment if we are to work effectively with both children and adults. Including new chapters on neuropsychology and other topics, this book helps us better understand individuals' cognitive capabilities. It would be a great benefit to your library or your graduate training classroom."--Rik Carl D'Amato, PhD, Director, Center for Teaching and Learning Enhancement; Head, Department of Psychology, University of Macao, China

"This is the most comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date text on intellectual assessment available. It covers current theories of intelligence, methods of intelligence testing, and their applications to special populations. The chapters are all written by leading scholars and combine clear research summaries with practical advice, making this a valuable book for graduate students and professionals interested in both research and practice."--Paul J. Frick, PhD, University Distinguished Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, University of New Orleans

"This updated volume is a valuable addition to the field of intellectual and psychological assessment. The editors have assembled the leaders in the field to present the most up-to-date information available. Many of the chapters are written by the test authors and theory creators themselves; readers will benefit from the firsthand approach to test and theory interpretation. The book is written in a way that will appeal to both experienced practitioners and graduate students just starting out in the field."--Andrew S. Davis, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, Ball State University

"A superb theoretical and clinical overview....The standards of theoretical and methodological rigor, comprehensive topical coverage, balanced and objective critical analysis, lifespan cognitive evaluation, and advocacy for special populations...are beautifully balanced. One could not ask for more from a review and critical evaluation of this extensive, rich, and complex literature." (PsycCRITIQUES 2012-01-05)

"Should be required reading in all intelligence testing courses and by anyone involved in the assessment of human and cognitive abilities." (Psychotherapy in Private Practice 2012-01-05)

"A thought-provoking and informative volume which should be read and considered by all practitioners who use and interpret tests of intelligence. It would be an excellent text for graduate courses in intelligence and its assessment. The book is generally extremely readable." (Canadian Child Psychiatry Review 1998-08-03)

"An excellent reference that should be read by anyone involved in the assessment of human and cognitive abilities....4 stars!" (Doody's Electronic Journal 2005-11-13)

“A valuable resource for neuropsychologists conducting comprehensive evaluations. Furthermore, the book's scope, depth, and clarity will be useful to seasoned as well as more junior practitioners and graduate students....Provides a comprehensive and empirically grounded account of intelligence theory and assessment. It is organized in a user-friendly manner, presents current and updated research, and offers the reader best practices for intellectual, cognitive, and neuropsychological testing from leading scientist-practitioners in psychology and related fields. The editors’ attention to the needs of their target audience is apparent and will go a long way in securing this book as an oft-used reference in one's clinical practice and theoretical understanding of contemporary intellectual assessment.” (Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology 2013-08-01)
