3.0 out of 5 stars Good for basics 4 April 2013
By Crispy
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A good basic book - it provides a good understanding of the basic anatomy. However is an older book so techniques have changed a great deal since this book was published. If you want a career in audiology I think this should be part of the collection yo have in the historical side of your book shelf. The structure of the ear and radio waves haven't changed though!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book delivers its title 27 Dec 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As an intro book, I found it extremely useful and packed with necessary information. Whoever said there was too much information to be found in this book is completely off the mark, although, this book is probably best suited to those who are pursuing a career in this field. The CD-ROM could have been more fully developed...

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst text in my 7 plus years of college 7 Oct 2009
By Julie Poore Peters - Published on Amazon.com
I am returning to school for my third degree. This text is by far the worst book I have ever cracked. I am giving it a single star since I can't rate it with none. Paragraph after paragraph the text contradicts itself. My professor is scrambling to help a class of post bachelor students pass. How sad is this? Our online blackboard is flooded with text based confusion and examples of contradictions within the text. Upon completion of each chapter you are left with a sense of resounding confusion and the thought "am I really this stupid" then you talk to your peers and professor and find that noone has made sense of it and we are all in the audiology program! What else is there to say!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best introduction to Audiology you'll find. 30 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book is one I refer to again and again and again. Not too dry, very informative, accurate, and helpful tables and diagrams.
A must (or at least a should) for anyone interested in Audiology.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great start....... 21 Feb 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have a BS in Audiology and am going back for my Au.D -- and this book is excellent in bringing me back up to speed on the materials I haven't touched in nearly 10 years. It is concise (definitely not wordy) and hits all the basics, starting from the history of hearing checks to today's detailed technological miracles of testing. Could have a bit more of the anatomy, but other than that, it really is a great start for those wanting to enter the field of Audiology.

2.0 out of 5 stars poorly organized 21 Sep 2008
By linguist - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a bit too dry and recondite for beginners. The organization is terrible and explanation is not clear at all.

If you are a rookie about to entering the field of audiology. this book would only push you away~
