Guidguide to board certificatione to Board Certification in Clinical Psychology by Fred Alberts, Jr., PhD, ABPP; Christopher Ebbe, PhD, ABPP; David Kazar, PhD, ABPP

"A major strength of this book is its provision of comments about fictitious cases provided in each of these sections....In a similar vein, the section in the chapter on the oral exam addressing the types of comments and behaviors that candidates should avoid may be one of the most important pieces of information that is not found on the general ABPP website."--PsycCRITIQUES
