Published in August of 2008, WAIS IV is the most widely used
intelligence test for adults in the world. Substantive changes were
made to the WAIS-IV from the WAIS-III leaving clinicians with
questions as to how to use and interpret the measure effectively.
Written by the creators of the new test, this book serves as the
ultimate insider's guide to the new test, providing users with the
kind of access to norms and data that would be unavailable to any
subsequent book on clinical use of this measure.
The book discusses the changes made between 3rd and 4th editions
along with an FAQ and answers about use and interpretation. The
reader is instructed how to interpret composite scores, and
everything needed to use and interpret two entirely new composite
scores: the General Ability Index (GAI), and the Cognitive
Proficiency Index (CPI). This information does NOT appear in the
manual accompanying the test.
The second section of the book focuses on WAIS IV use and
interpretation with special clinical applications and populations,
including with multicultural clients, in neuropsychological
settings, with individuals experiencing psychological disorders,
and with older adults. The editors and chapter authors have
exclusive access to proprietary WAIS IV data to run advanced
analyses and provide information beyond what is offered in the
