Description

Clinical Neuropsychology Study Guide and Board Review, Second Edition 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 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. Information is provided in a concise, outlined manner, with liberal use of bullets, boxes, illustrations, and 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. Additionally, the book contains four 125-question mock exams designed to help readers study and prepare for the written exam. The answers to all questions are explained along with appropriate and supportive references.
