Overview

In the third edition of Howard Rosenthal’s best-selling test preparation guide for the National Counselor Examination (NCE), students get more help than ever with an expanded section on marriage and family counseling, new material on web counseling, and updated material throughout. This resource now includes over 1,050 tutorial questions/answers and a new "Final Review and Last Minute Super Review Boot Camp" section. This guide is an ideal review tool for state licensing, the NCC credential, and preparation for written and oral boards. And because the new Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Examination (CPCE), draws from the same subject areas, the Encyclopedia is a perfect study guide for the CPCE as well. Written in a unique question/answer format, with a quick reference index, this is also an essential student reference volume for use in any counseling, social work, or human services course.



Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Howard Rosenthal is a gifted and humorous writer as well as a scholar's scholar who has a way of explaining complex concepts so they are understandable and easily remembered. The fourth edition of The Encyclopedia of Counseling proves that and provides the reader with all the information necessary to pass the National Counselor Exam or any other test related to it. Rosenthal's book is exceptional and worth reading just for the fun of it."

Samuel T. Gladding, PhD, professor of counseling, Wake Forest University

"Dr. Rosenthal’s Encyclopedia of Counseling is an invaluable and comprehensive tool in preparing for all required counseling exams. Covering all eight areas of counselor competency, it is the only review tool one needs not only to pass the exam, but also to assure oneself that one has achieved a strong foundation on which to build one’s practice."

Kristy Cobillas, MEd, LPC, NCC, counselor, Agape Christian Counseling Services, St. Louis, Missouri

"Dr. Howard Rosenthal provides readers with the sole resource that is needed to successfully complete their licensure exams. The Encyclopedia of Counseling is written in a conversational tone that illuminates the myriad counseling concepts that will be encountered during the examination process by providing past exam questions, answers, and explanations. In my ten years of recommending this book, I have not had a single student or supervisee fail that has utilized it as suggested."

Rachelle D. Smith, PhD, LPC, Office of Diversity & Inclusion, Washington University in St. Louis

"Howard Rosenthal has done it again! Another book that is enjoyable to read and right on target for the readers wanting to prepare for exams, with complete explanations of questions and answer choices. His comfortable style is perfect for those with test anxiety and includes an excellent review of information for those who have been out of school for a while."

Deanna Kinder, LPC, NCC, executive director, American Counseling Association of Missouri

If you want to pass the CPCE with no trouble, you will use this book! I was so nervous about the test, but this book has the answers. There are also some great CD's that can be purchased with it that also help. I am keeping it around to study for the LPC Exam when the time comes. He provides the information in a review-type format and bases it off of his knowledge of these tests. He uses humor and gives cool tips and hints for remembering things! Now this isn't something you sit down and read in it's entirety in one day for fun, but it serves its purpose WELL! :)

If your goal is to become a professional counselor I would encourage you to purchase this book. My Masters program was solid but it did not prepare me for the National Counselors Exam. I bought this book in May 2002. I studied it for two hours a day. I took the NCE in October 2002. I scored 124 points. I am now a Licensed Professional Counselor. I give this book the credit.

This was an easy to follow and read textbook. I definitely would recommend this study guide to anyone who is preparing for the CPCE. The hints were very helpful and promoted learning. I switched test dates and had only 3 weeks to study. This book helped me to successfully pass the test with a overall high score.

Very helpful for both the CPCE and NCE.  I used this book in addition to the CDs.  I really would recommend getting both and then reselling them after you PASS your tests.  I scored within the top 95% of all of those who took the test and used only those two materials to study.

I recently took the NCE exam and used Rosenthol's book as a guide. After being encouraged by others to purchase this book, I did with the confidence I would do well on the exam. After reading this book twice, answering all questions and learning devices for every theorist and principle listed in the book, the day of the exam, this book did not help me whatsoever. I'm disappointed at the fact that this text is not edited well, the humor gets in the way of learning, and some information in the book is contradictory. If you want to feel prepared for the NCE exam, go to the NCE website and use books suggested by the organization itself.

This book is excellent. It makes you want to read it which in turn aids in your studying the material. I would recommend this book along with the cd's to anyone who is taking the NCE.

after failing the texas lpc exam, i armed myself with dr.r's book and cd's, studied diligently for about 3 months and not only passed but scored very high on the NCE. best study material out there!

I am horrible at exam time! After this many years of schooling you would think it would get better. This book is helping so much to put the confidence in me to go and take this test. Our graduate program has a written exam that we must take and it is helping us prepare for that plus the NCE. The audio tapes have been extremely useful as well. I'll let you know if I pass!

O.K. I looked at my notes from graduate school --they're in separate piles, these notes that made such sense when I took them are now chicken scratches. In a fret, I bought this Encyclopedia of Counseling. Rosenthal has taken the elements of the National Counseling Exam and broken it down into useable bites. Questions are given with enough explanation so to jog the memory on the subject matter, at the same time, offering brief explanations of why other answers are not correct. One cannot miss the confidence/smug attitude the author projects in the book...
