Format: Hardcover
A phenomenal book that gives a good overview of each of the main tests used by school psychologists, and has many tables and lists that help with report writing. There's also a section that highlights good/bad reports and the reasons why. When I was a student this was a necessary tool. As a first year school psychologist I still refer to it. Beware that there is a supplement that now goes with it as this book came out before the WISC-IV. Hence, you may want to check to see if Sattler is bringing out a new book in the near future and hold off for that to avoid having to buy both the book and the supplement. That's why I gave only 4 stars. It's expensive but well worth the money.

As a graduate student in a school psychology program, I am always looking for books that are simple, direct, and informative. I think that Sattler was successful in capturing these attributes and then some. He was able to identify and fully explain different assessment tools in layman terms. He also was descriptive of the various tests, subtests, and provides the knowledge that one should have to correctly intrepret the test results. I feel that this book is the bible of school psychologists and is a must have in every school!

This book is essential for those who are studying to be, working as or working closely with school psychologists. The only thing lacking in Sattler's publication is a more thorough coverage of the Woodcock-Johnson assessments.

Sattler's work is a wonderful tool that has helped me better understand assessment. There are wonderful charts and worksheets that make interpretation of results much easier. I recommend the purchase of this book to anyone involved with the assessment of children. I especially recommend this to any school psychology major.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a 'must have' for every school psychologist. Sattler is a recognized expert in assessment. The book is certainly helpful as a reference and an overview of important concepts. The reason I gave it 4 stars was that I found the writing a little hard to follow at times and overly general on certain topics. I heard that Sattler now has additional guides that can be purchased with this book. It would be great if Sattler would provide smaller and more specific 'how to' manuals for the main assessment tools school psychologists use. Overall, I can see how Sattler has achieved is excellent reputation. This book is a necessary reference for all practitioners in the field.

This was a dry read. I hoped to get some definitive definitions for Learning Disabilities and assessments but they went about it in such a round about way that it was hard for me to figure out what I was actually learning about at the time. The review of each assessment is helpful but the format was hard for me to follow.

Book is as expected and satisfactory. I bought it to complete CEU course on line to help me renew clinical license. Book is well-organized, easy to follow for various types of testing it presents; good reference book.
