Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the Fourth Edition

"In sum, this book continues to set the standard in the field and is strongly recommended as a basic reference guide for those clinicians who routinely do psychological testing." (Psychotherapy Review, 11/6/2006)

Review

"In the 5th edition of his very helpful text, Handbook of Psychological Assessment, Groth-Marnat once again assembles information about the history, development, and latest research on the major psychological assessment instruments in current use. He also gives wise and clear advice about the general process of clinical assessment, and about how to integrate information into a useful psychological report. I was particularly fascinated with the sample reports Groth-Marnat assembled from different settings, which give a sense of the breadth of assessment practice today.
This handbook will be extremely useful to students beginning their careers in psychological assessment, and to experienced assessors who want a handy resource when needed."
Dr. Stephen Finn

"This Handbook is absolutely at the top of the “to read” list, or should be, for serious scholars of psychological measurement methods.  Already known for its attention to detail and it’s depth, this edition of the Handbook has been given greater breadth through the addition of several great features:  1) The literature has been critically updated, 2) sections for working with special populations have been added, and 3) its content is tuned to important changes in the field.  In all this, it has retained Groth-Marnat’s great clarity and devotion to being accurate and useful."
Larry E. Beutler, PhD, ABPP; Stanford University School of Medicine

Format: Hardcover
This book offers an excellent overview of many aspects of psych assessment. It was very helpful in reviewing for quals- but watch out! There are several errors in this book! The specificity of a test is incorrectly explained, as is MMPI-2 TRIN interpretation. Some wierd formatting inconsistencies pop up in the Rorschach section... I don't recommend this book for 1st year grad students who are learning this material for the first time because they won't catch the errors and may learn things incorrectly.

This book was required...Very dry reading....boring print....but, it got the job done! Good reference book to add your library (in case you forget what assessment is used for what purpose) and it also has the needed point scales with descriptions. This is a Master's Level Clinician book!

This text is an excellent handbook for those becoming familiar with the administration, scoring, interpretation and reporting of psychometric tests. The information included is detailed, practical, well-referenced and comprehensive. Despite this thoroughness the text is very easy to read with a conversational style. The ebook version is user-friendly and the information works well in and e-reader format.

This book is a must for new clinicians who are learning about the ins and outs of psychological assessment.It was specifically elpful when it came to detailed information about psychometrics such as the MMPI-2 and the WAIS-IV. It explained how to conduct score and interpret the tests in detail. If psychological assessment is an interest or a requirement this book is a must have!

I used this book as a text in an introductory graduate-level course on psychological assessment. I found it to be comprehensive (at least for the big tests taught in psychoed and personality testing) and easily accessible. The students seemed to find it useful.

I needed to update literature on writing reports. This book is already owned by my internship supervisor and I decided to get my own copy. It was listed as used, but it is in excellent condition. It also arrived in a timely manner once I ordered it.

Used this book in my two doctoral class, and it really explains the material. Many textbooks are so dry, I can barely get through the material, but this one was somewhat interesting and easy to learn from.
