"In summary, this is a well-crafted guidebook for anyone considering the process of becoming board certified. This resource is something that could have been used by thousands of applicants over the past 50 years who might have benefited from the excellent knowledge about the process of becoming board certified. I, for one, wish that this book had been available years ago when I was preparing for my boards. In my opinion, this comprehensive guidebook is a must-read for anyone considering the pursuit of certification with ABPP. It is sure to answer all of the questions of even the most reluctant and inquisitive applicants. This brief, 174 page text is well-written in a concise and enjoyable fashion. The editors and authors are to be thoroughly commended for doing an outstanding job."--Frank M. Dattilio, Ph.D., ABPP, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, in Journal of Forensic Psychology
"This excellent book does a good job of taking readers through the certification process. The authors encourage competent psychologists to become board certified in order to inspire more confidence in the general public. They also note this will help enhance employment opportunities and financial compensation."--Doody's
