Hopelessly dated. Very detailed in the statistics behind psychological testing, but many of the tests discussed have been revised multiple times or no longer on the market. Many other texts are far better.

This book is very difficult to read and follow. The wording is complex and in many cases verbose to the point of being frustrating.
