“The book provides a good balance between conceptual and applied dimensions in psychological assessment with specific emphasis on core considerations and principles derived from and applicable to the multicultural and multilingual context of South Africa.  By virtue of their scope, foci, scholarly merit and contextual relevance the themes addressed would appeal to a wide range of readers, including but not limited to students, academics and practitioners.  The utility, cultural sensitivity and relevance of the assessment tools and techniques is central to the theory and practice of psychological assessment and the book offers a significant contribution to the extension and the advancement of knowledge in this domain.” Prof Maria Damianova, Monash University – South Africa; Counselling and Educational Psychologist

“Psychological assessment constitutes an important part of the work of research and applied psychologists. The worth of psychological assessment lies in the scientific evidence on which the tools and methods are based, as well as their cultural relevance and local applicability. This edited book provides a comprehensive reference to equip researchers and practitioners in South Africa in selecting the appropriate evidence-based psychological tests for cognitive and personality assessment.” Prof Fanny Cheung, Chair Professor of Psychology – The Chinese University of Hong Kong

“There is no question that this textbook will make a significant contribution to the field of psychological testing and assessment in South Africa. Such a book is long overdue and the information and research that is compiled in should serve the field of psychology well for many years to come. In fact, I suspect that this text will become a “classic” text in the field and will be used as a reference for graduate students and psychologists for many years to come.” Prof Juvia Heuchert, Allegheny College, USA
