A Compendium of Neuropsychological Tests

Administration, Norms, and Commentary

Third Edition

Esther Strauss, Elisabeth M. S. Sherman, and Otfried Spreen

For the practicing neuropsychologist or researcher, keeping up with the sheer number of newly published or updated neuropsychological tests is a challenge, as is evaluating the utility and psychometric properties of each test in a clinical context. This thoroughly revised third edition of the well-established reference text, A Compendium of Neuropsychological Tests, presents critical reviews of major neuropsychological tools. Written in a comprehensive, easy-to-read format, it provides the reader with essential information concerning theoretical background, norms, reliability, validity, and utility of tests as well as of new measures. All chapters have been extensively updated and expanded, and two new chapters have been added: "Psychometrics in Neuropsychological Assessment" and "Norms Selection in Neuropsychological Assessment." Of interest to neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, and educational and clinical psychologists working with adults as well as with pediatric populations, this volume will aid practitioners in selecting appropriate testing measures for their patients, and will provide them with the knowledge needed to arrive at empirically supported interpretations of the results.
