Book is very useful and easy to read. It comes with forms, but I can't print them since it is a Kindle ebook. I don't like that because I know that if I would have rented/bought this from RedShelf ebooks, I could have printed off the forms to use. However, Kindle allows me to copy and paste small portions of text and also automatically pastes the reference along with it! I know that the RedShelf version does not allow this. Highlighting is super easy as is attaching notes to the text. I'm trying to decide if I want to pay for the ebook so I can keep it, or to buy it somewhere else. If I was able to print the forms I would buy it without hesitation from Kindle.
This book is awesome. It (and the Treatment Resource Manual) is one of the best books I've bought for SLP material. (And I have a lot.) I have used this many times already in grad school and it's definitely one I'll use in my career. It has wonderful information on a variety of topics. It is well organized with well-documented research and explanations. It offers a wide range of materials to choose from and easily access. The price is steep but definitely worth it.
Great resource for speech language pathologists. Comes with cd to allow for printing forms.
