The Second Edition of this well-known Compendium has been considerably expanded and updated. It contains new chapters on test selection administration and preparation of the client; report writing and the informing interview; executive functions; occupational interest and aptitude; and malingering and symptom validity testing. The first four chapters focus on history taking, test selection, profiling of test results, report writing, and informing the client. The remaining thirteen chapters contain nearly all the tests covered in the first edition plus almost the same number of new ones. Some of the new tests are: Kaufman-Brief Intelligence Test, Mini-Mental State Examination, Wechsler Individual Achievement Test, Design Fluency Test, California Verbal Learning Test, and Boston Diagnostic Aphasia Test. For each test, the authors provide a thorough description, source and price, instructions for administration, duration, scoring procedures, normative data, and validity information. They also discuss special tests and clinical techniques in examining the functional integrity of brain regions. The volume does not limit itself to the adult age range, but includes all the norms available for pediatric and gerontological populations, as well as neuropsychological tests developed specifically for children.

Worth every penny

Using this book makes quick work of the task of selecting the best available normative data for one's purposes. The 3rd edition of the compendium is a tremendous improvement over the previous edition. First, it's much larger than the previous edition, so a lot more information is covered. More importantly, the authors have integrated an enormous amount of information and presented it in a format that is sufficiently detailed, yet clearly written, well organized, and easy to use. Expensive on a trainee budget, but well worth the price.

Review of 3rd Edition, A Compendium of Neuropsychological Tests

In the 3rd revision of this text, which has become a vital source of information for both practising and research neuropsychologists, the authors have extended further their previously established tradition of providing information about the norms, psychometric properties, and utility of a wide range of tests used in neuropsychological assessment. Of particular value to the clinician is not only the clear summaries of the psychometric atributes of the various tests but also the authors' critical appraisal of the reviewed techniques that facilitates the selection of the most appopriate test for a particular patient or given research situation.

An Excellent Resource for Neuropsych Clinicians

This is an excellent source for beginning and advanced clinicians. The descriptions of the tests and test administration are concise and easy to understand. In addition, the norms for each test are included. The tests are grouped by the what specific areas they measure (i.e. Intelligence, Achievement, Memory, and Sensory and Motor areas). Since this text covers a wide array of tests, it is well worth the investment.

Among the new tests are the Kaufman-Brief Intelligence Test, Mini-Mental State Examination, Wechsler Individual Achievement Test, Design Fluency Test, Symbol Digit Modalities Test, Consonant Trigrams, California Verbal Learning Test, and the Boston Diagnostic Aphasia Test. For each test the authors provide a thorough description, source and price, instructions for administration, duration, scoring procedures, sample score sheets, normative data, and information on reliability and validity. They also discuss why special tests may be of use and emphasize clinical techniques helpful in making inferences about the functional integrity of brain regions. An important feature of this compendium is that it does not limit itself to the adult age range, but includes all available norms for pediatric and gerontological populations, as well as neuropsychological tests developed specifically for children. A very practical resource, this book aims to help neuropsychologists, neurologists, educational and clinical psychologists select appropriate tests, interpret the results, and formulate opinions within the context of the evaluation and treatment of neuropsychological disorders. It will also alert clinicians and researchers to the psychometricproperties of their instruments. Less

    I just love this book. It has most everything a neuropsychologist needs. If you have to get just one book on neuropsychological tests, that would be my recommendation.

    A Compendium of Neuropsychological Tests: Administration, Norms, and Commentary

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

    For the practicing neuropsychologist or researcher, keeping up with the sheer number of newly published or updated tests is a challenge, as is evaluating the utility and psychometric properties of neuropsychological tests in a clinical context. The goal of the third edition of A Compendium ofNeuropsychological Tests. a well-established neuropsychology reference text, is twofold. First, the Compendium is intended to serve as a guidebook that provides a comprehensive overview of the essential aspects of neuropsychological assessment practice.
    Second, it is intended as a comprehensive sourcebook of critical reviews of major neuropsychological assessment tools for the use by practicing clinicians and researchers. Written in a comprehensive, easy-to-read reference format, and based on exhaustive review of research literature in neuropsychology, neurology, psychology, and related disciplines, the book covers topics such as basic aspects of neuropsychological assessment as well as the theoretical background, norms, and the utility, reliability, and validity of neuropsychological tests.
    For this third edition, all chapters have been extensively revised and updated. The text has been considerably expanded to provide a comprehensive yet practical overview of the state of the field. Two new chapters have been added: “Psychometrics in Neuropsychological Assessment” and “Norms in Psychological Assessment.” The first two chapters present basic psychometric concepts and principles. Chapters three and four consider practical aspects of the history-taking interview and the assessment process itself. Chapter five provides guidelines on report-writing and chapters six through sixteen consist of detailed, critical reviews of neuropsychological tests, and address the topics of intelligence, achievement, executive function, attention, memory, language, visual perception, somatosensory olfactory function, mood/personality, and response bias. A unique feature is the inclusion of tables that summarize salient features of tests within each domain so that readers can easily compare measures. Additional tables within each test review summarize important features of each test, highlight aspects of each normative dataset, and provide an overview of psychometric properties. Of interest to neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, and educational and clinical psychologists working with adults as well as pediatric populations, this volume will aid practitioners in selecting appropriate testing measures for their patients, and will provide them with the knowledge needed to make empirically supported interpretations of test results.

    “The second edition was an exceptional book that could be found in almost any neuropsychology office. The third edition continues this excellence…The third edition is significantly updated and expanded and is worth the price, even for owners of previous editions.”--Doody’s

    “As stated in the preface, the goal for this edition was to create a user-friendly reference work that covered all the relevant details of the most frequently used neuropsychological tests, and to provide a general overview of issues ‘germane to neuropsychological assessment.’ In short: to help you ‘know your tools’ and to function as a guidebook to the practice of neuropsychology. These goals are surely met- beyond all expections…Having a copy of the third edition of the Compendium at hand would help any of us ‘know our tools’ substantially better. A Compendium of Neuropsychological Tests, Third Edition is a mature work of outstanding scholarship, and it should find a place on every neuropsychologist’s desk.”--JINS

    “A Compendium of Neuropsychological Tests is very well written and superbly organized and would be a valuable addition to the personal library of any clinical neuropsychologist. The book provides an excellent update of current research on a wide sample of neuropsychological tests.”--PsycCRITIQUES

    “The third edition of A Compendium on Neuropsychological Tests is a splendid and magnificent achievement in the field of neuropsychology. We all owe a great deal of debt to Drs. Strauss, Sherman, and Spreen for creating such a masterpiece that is literally a must have for all neuropsychologists.”--Applied Neuropsychology

Chapter five provides guidelines on report-writing and chapters six through sixteen consist of detailed, critical reviews of neuropsychological tests, and address the topics of intelligence, achievement, executive function, attention, memory, language, visual perception, somatosensory olfactory function, mood/personality, and response bias. A unique feature is the inclusion of tables that summarize salient features of tests within each domain so that readers can easily compare measures. Additional tables within each test review summarize important features of each test, highlight aspects of each normative dataset, and provide an overview of psychometric properties. Of interest to neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, and educational and clinical psychologists working with adults as well as pediatric populations, this volume will aid practitioners in selecting appropriate testing measures for their patients, and will provide them with the knowledge needed to make empirically supported interpretations of test results.
