The initial chapters of Essentials of WAIS-III Assessment provide step-by-step guidance on test administration, scoring, and interpretation. In the chapters following, the authors provide their expert assessment of the test's relative strengths and weaknesses, valuable advice on its clinical applications, exciting new research data on aging and IQ, and several illuminating case reports.
