Audiology Review: Preparing for the Praxis and Comprehensive Examinations is intended to serve as a review guide for audiology students and audiologists preparing for AuD program comprehensive examinations and the Audiology Praxis® exam. The text can also serve as a resource for instructors teaching courses designed to review audiology content and prepare students for various types of formative or summative evaluations. Over 13 chapters, topics related to audiology basics, diagnostics, treatment, research, and professional issues are reviewed.  

Unlike other Praxis study guides that lack audiology-specific content and are comprised solely of review questions, this book provides a review of the main audiology content areas, case-based examples, practice questions, and a full online practice test.

Section I begins with a description of test question types, then discusses strategies to select an answer, and finally discusses techniques to utilize when taking the Praxis.

Section II covers the fundamentals of audiology: auditory and vestibular anatomy, physiology, and disorders; psychoacoustics, principles of sound, and audiometric instrumentation; as well as information regarding the development of speech and language in individuals with typical and atypical hearing.

Section III further discusses audiological diagnostic techniques for adult and pediatric patients; vestibular testing and interpretation; and differential diagnosis of auditory and vestibular disorders.

Section IV is a review of the screening and identification methods for hearing and balance disorders; industrial audiology; and treatment practices for amplification, implantable devices; as well as audiological counseling, and documentation.

Section V concludes the book with a review of research, information on evidence-based practice, and professional topics in audiology.
