Kaufman (Yale U.) and Lichtenberger (The Salk Institute) say the intended audience for the first edition is the same as the 1990 first, but neglect to mention who that was. They describe the clinical and neuro-psychological assessment of intelligence, focusing the third edition of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS-III). They have narrowed the focus to individually administered, clinical measures, dropping coverage of comprehensive neuro-psychological batteries, adaptive behavior inventories, and individual achievement tests. They also incorporate findings and debates regarding intelligence and its testing that have emerged over the past decade.
