Review: Psychological Testing: Principles, Applications, and Issues

User Review  - Sarah - Goodreads

I hate statistics, so when taking a psychometrics course I was very surprised to find a textbook I enjoyed reading! The text is very simple to understand and is informative without being overwhelming. I strongly recommend this to anyone who needs to get a grasp on psychometric testing. Read full review
