After reading the 6th edition, I happened to see the 3rd edition in the local library. The IQ test is identical-it looks like the only difference is that some passages of the essay section were either deleted or slightly altered.

Overall, this is a short and informative book. It's not for MENSA-types, looking for challenging IQ-like questions...but it will provide some insight into your thinking patterns (left vs. right-brain). As one previous reviewer noted, I think some of the questions are not culture-fair so don't take your score too seriously if it's low...

Also, I'm not sure the book clarifies enough what IQ is and isn't: to the general public, IQ is synonymous with "how smart you are"- this book dispells that notion but not as clearly as possible.

The key idea behind IQ is that g(eneral intelligence) exists, i.e., people who are good at one thing tend to be good at other things. Certainly, there's some truth to this, but taken to the extreme it implies that IQ tests consisting of only certain questions (like all verbal or all spatial tests) would be sufficient to measure g. Personally, I suspect that intellect consists of many diverse mental functions with varying degrees of cross-correlation. (This would also explain why "idiot" savants can be way below average in most mental respects and yet extraordinarily good at certain things.) Also, IQ tests are all about discerning patterns- they don't test for the ability to create new patterns...

Think of IQ like a baseball batting average, which is a great way of ranking hitters. Certainly, it's not the whole story since we also care (sometimes more) about home runs, RBIs and slugging average. Also a batting average tells you nothing about a player's defensive skills and is, of course, N/A for a pitcher :)

"Test Your IQ" does everything that it claims to do. It provides a full IQ test, with annotated solutions, and a table that allows you to convert your score in this test to an IQ number. It also provides a discussion of the nature of intelligence; advice on identifying gifted and talented characteristics (including a gifted and talented checklist); and a discussion of left-brain and right-brain characteristics. Munzert does this adequately, and this might suit some readers, but it is not done extremely well.

The biggest down-side of this book is with the questions in the IQ test. Most of the questions are multiple choice questions and in many cases I could see more than one answer that could be "correct" based on different lines of reasoning. Also, there is only one IQ test provided in this book. As I said before, this might be adequate for some, but other IQ test books do exist which provide more than one test. At the same time as purchasing this book, I also purchased Test Your IQ by H.J. Eysenck, which does everything that this book does, but provides eight tests instead of one.

This is not a terrible book. However, there are other books that does what this book does, only better. If you are only going to buy one IQ test book, I'd buy Eysenck's book instead.
