First published in 1963 as a guide for teachers, principals, admission and guidance counselors, social workers, and personnel workers but used most often over its incarnations by students in psychological and educational measurement, industrial personnel, counseling, and related professions. Revised here from the 1991 edition with updated content and references and a somewhat expanded glossary, still without pronunciation. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
