Published in August of 2008, WAIS-IV is the most widely used intelligence test for adults in the world. Substantive changes were made to the WAIS-IV from the WAIS-III leaving clinicians with questions as to how to use and interpret the measure effectively. Written by the creaters or the new test, this book serves as the ultimate insider's guide to the new test, providing user's with the kind of access to norms and data that would be unavailable to any subsequent book on clinical use of this measure.

The book discusses the changes made between 3rd and 4th editions along with an FAQ and answers to same about use and interpretation. The reader is instructed how to interpret composite scores, and everything needed to use and interpret two entirely new composite scores: the General Ability Index (GAI), and the Cognitive Proficiency Index (CPI). This information does NOT appear in the manual accompanying the test.

The second section of the book focuses on WAIS-IV use and interpretation with special clinical applications and populations, including with multicultural clients, in neuropsychological settings, with individuals experiencing psychological disorders, and with older adults. The editors and chapter authors will have exclusive access to proprietary WAIS-IV data to run advanced analyses and provide information beyond what is offered in the manual.

* Provides practical advice on scoring and administration
* Facillitates understanding WAIS-IV use with special populations including multicultural clients, in neuropsychological settings, with individuals experiencing psychological disorders, and with older adults
* Describes use of the WAIS-IV with WMS-II
* Includes case studies in each chapter for real-world applications
