Interesting and up-to-date exercises test cognitive flexibility and tap critical and creative thinking. Written for adolescents and adults with mild to moderate impairments, the exercises are easily adaptable for many populations and uses. The second edition of Workbook for Reasoning Skills, which now has a new subtitle, features many changes and improvements that will please those who regularly use Susan Howell Brubaker's series of workbooks and sourcebooks.

Workbook pages feature improved layouts with larger, easier-to-read type and are printed with reinforcing plastic around the ring holes to prevent them from easily tearing. Approximately 200 new questions have been added and nearly 1,500 changes have been made to additional items from the first edition. A new user's guide and suggested answer key are also provided along with completed examples for each exercise and tabbed dividers to help locate exercises quickly.
