This is a useful adjunct to the far more comprehensive studies required in conducting Neuropsychological Evaluations, which are directed to ferreting out the Neurobiological (Cerebral) basis of Cognitive Abnormalities.
It's also worthwhile to have several of the other texts in this series (also authored by the Kaufmans), so as to avail oneself of other, purely PSYCHOLOGICAL test methodologies.
