Overview


The Clinical Neuropsychology Study Guide and Board Review provides an easy to study volume with sample questions and recommended readings that are specifically designed to help individuals prepare for the ABCN written examination. In addition, this book can also be used as a teaching tool for graduate students and trainees at various levels. The book is divided into three sections: Section 1: Foundations of Clinical Neuropsychology; Section II: Fundamentals of Assessment; and Section III: Disorders and Conditions. The format is geared toward exam preparation and is much less dense than a typical textbook. Materials are provided in a concise, outlined manner, with liberal use of bullets, boxes, and illustrations/tables that allow readers to easily review and integrate information into their already established knowledge base. To augment the study guide, a recommended readings list at the end of each chapter provides references to more comprehensive materials considered important or seminal in each topic area.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The recently published book, Neuropsychology Study Guide and Board Review, by Drs. Stucky, Kirkwood, and Donders is a wonderful resource. I wish this was available when I was studying for my ABCN boards, but will enjoy it in any case as an efficient way to review topics from the three sections of the book: Foundations of Clinical Neuropsychology, Fundamentals of Assessment, and Disorders and Conditions. The editors and the chapter authors have made an excellent contribution that will be of value to students, new clinicians who are studying for their board exam, and even seasoned practitioners." -American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology Community
