"The authors do an effective job of presenting all aspects and considerations practitioners need when using the WISC-V... Intelligent Testing with the WISC-V is a must read for anyone administering and/or using the WISC-V. This book serves as an administration companion, interpretation guide, reference book, and critical review of the WISC-V." - Todd L. Chmielewski, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 62, No. 26. "The book is overflowing with strengths, setting itself apart from other books on the WISC-V for several reasons. The most important one is the truly impressive history, knowledge, and experience the lead author has with the WISC, beginning with the WISC-Revised (WISC-R) and his relationship with David Wechsler. Alan Kaufman's unique perspective with the history and development of the WISC allows the readers a unique viewpoint in understanding why changes were made or how decisions were decided in the development of the fifth generation of this test. Additional strengths of the text include the broadness of topics covered, application of various theoretical orientations to understanding and interpreting the test, and a summary of critiques by experts in the field. When attempting to developing critical thinking skills, few books provide the plethora of opinions and viewpoints from theoretically dissimilar experts that allows a reader to evaluate the various theories and approaches in a manner like this book does."-review from The Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment Ronald S.
