"Taking the psychology licensure exam can be a time of considerable anxiety. This thoughtful text carefully leads the reader through the eight content domains of the EPPP in a manner that is comforting and refreshingly substantive. It is an excellent investment in one's professional future."

This authoritative guide to the EPPP provides an affordable and comprehensive review of core exam content and includes over 300 sample questions. The guide goes beyond merely "teaching the test" by including contributions from the directors of top psychology training and internship programs in the US. This approach helps users to obtain the depth and breadth of knowledge required for passing the exam, and mirrors how doctoral level courses are commonly taught.

The review covers the development and format of the EPPP along with successful test-taking strategies. Chapters covering EPPP content domains each include a comprehensive review of the material, key points to remember, sample questions, and recommended readings. In order to reflect test presentation, chapter authors cover each subject domain according to the ASPPB's EPPP Information for Candidates Guide. Chapter authors are comprised of clinical supervisors and faculty directly involved in training interns, residents, and fellows in psychology.

Key Features:

  • Presents an in-depth, comprehensive content review that goes beyond "teaching the test"
  • Provides an affordable alternative to EPPP preparation courses
  • Written and edited by directors of the foremost training, internship, and postdoctoral fellowship programs
  • Includes over 300 sample questions

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher J Graver, PhD, ABPP-CN(Madigan Healthcare System)
Description: The Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP) is the national standardized test for psychology licensure. This is a study guide for the test.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate budding psychologists about the major topic areas included on the EPPP.
Audience: Clinical psychology students preparing for the EPPP are the intended audience. The book is written at an appropriate level, but some of the contributing authors are graduate students who are not yet licensed.
Features: Each chapter covers a major section of the EPPP. The first noticeable omission is a chapter on industrial and organizational psychology. This is a section of the test and it is frequently the area that clinical psychologists are least familiar with. Thus, it would be expected that any book would have this as a major focus. There are study tips and reviews of the topic areas in each chapter, as well as practice questions. Unfortunately, these are not all accurate. For example, a practice question about symptom validity asks readers to choose the one option that is not true, but all the options are true. In this case, even the explanation provided in the answer is inaccurate, reflecting a lack of knowledge about the area. Some of the concepts and terminology also are outdated. Given some of the inaccuracies and outdated information on the EPPP test itself, this may not be a concern, but certainly it should be taken into account. There is a reasonable amount of information in each chapter, although it is limited. Although the book could be a good review just before the test, its brevity may be too pronounced to be adequate preparation for the EPPP over the weeks or months ahead of time. On the back cover, an endorsement states, "This is an efficient alternative to expensive EPPP preparation courses," but other EPPP study guides often contain 4-6 volumes, each one equal in length to this book, to give some idea of relatively cursory nature of this book.
Assessment: Although it would be every student's dream to be able to study for such an important exam with a short book, this one falls short of providing an accurate and comprehensive study guide. It is most suitable as a complement to other study strategies rather than an alternative.
