Editorial Reviews

Review

"...plenty of information in this book, useful to both students and to experienced neuropsychologists..." (Nueropsychological Rehabilitation, September 2003)

"...Hebben and Milberg have written a text that has considerable strengths and would make an excellent resource for neuropsychologists in training or nonspecialists looking for an overview of neuropsychlogical assessment." (Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment)

Review

"In Essentials of Neuropsychological Assessment (2nd edition), Doctors Hebben and Milberg provide a focused, yet thorough overview of the relevant aspects of clinical neuropsychological assessment practice. They effectively cover details of interest and import for psychologists occupying all portions of the neuropsychology learning curve. This practical text can serve as a go-to resource for a clinically oriented graduate course in neuropsychological assessment, as well as a handy reference for the practicing neuropsychologist. There is a vast amount of collected clinical wisdom imparted in the book’s various sections. These experienced clinical neuropsychologists leave few stones unturned in this aptly titled work."
Greg J. Lamberty, PhD, ABPP-CN, Noran Neurological Clinic, Minneapolis, MN

While I certainly agree that this would be a great book for beginners, for someone who has taken a few assessment classes this would mostly be old news. I bought this book to help me delineate between Neuropsychological assessments and other assessment techniques and to fill me in on commonly used neuropsychological tests. To the book's credit, it did answer my questions, just not at the depth I was looking for. The first half of the book discusses general assessment techniques, most of which I already knew, and doesn't get to commonly used tests until the second half (and even then it is only extremely brief descriptions). On the other hand, the text is written beautifully, and is easy to understand and follow along. Another thing I particularly liked about this book is that at the end of each chapter there is a mini-quiz to test your knowledge -- particularly useful for any students who may be taking this course. As such, I would recommend this book to beginners, but suggest something else for those who are more familiar with psychological testing.

This is a quick, easy to understand guide to understanding neuropsychological assessment. It is a great companion to any of the common neuropsychological tests (i.e Luria-nebraska) as a reference. It also provides a comparison among the more common assessment tools.

I bought this book so that I could better understand the processes a clinical neuropsychologist uses to prepare for an evaluation, and how the evaluation is administered.

Five months prior to purchasing this book, I was admitted to the hospital with TBI (traumatic brain injury) with multiple fractures. After a month in the ICU, I was admitted to in-patient neuro rehab. Initially I could not identify the month, year, who the president is, or even where I was or why. After a month of in-patient and several months of outpatient speech and occupational therapy, I had recovered fairly well, and it was recommended a neuropsychological assessment be completed prior to return to driving and full time work I wanted to know more about what an assessment was like.

From the layperson's perspective the sections are organized in a logical manner. The introduction gives a good overview of the history of neuropsychology, defined as the study of brain-behavior relationships. Subsequent chapters cover skills, education and training for clinical neuropsychologists, and then goes into the testing process.

The testing process is adequately described in sections covering interviewing and clinical history, test selection, administrating and scoring, and interpretation. It lists categories of tests and brief descriptions of their application, but does not go into details of individual tests. There are also sections on report writing and special issues such as dealing with language and cultural differences and handling of malingering.

Overall I found this book to be as described, a handy reference book for clinicians, while not being overly technical so that it is understandable to the layperson. It provides a very good overview, and I imagine it is also a useful reference for professionals in the field.

This book provides a solid review of basic aspects of neuropsychological assessment. It does an excellent job of addressing diagnostic issues (sensitivity and specificity, the importance of considering base rates, differentiating normal from abnormal performance etc.)It is aimed at the clinician and spends less time on neuroscience issues that do not have a direct bearing on what neuropsychologists actually do. Many different assessment tools and techniques are discussed. I would have like to see more critical analysis of the different instruments but perhaps this can be addressed in subsequent additions.
