I bought this book to guide me in constructing a scale for my psychology PhD. The book content was really helpful and I like how lightweight it is (easy to carry round!)

The price is higher than I would have expected to pay, hence my rating of 4 not 5 stars.

Dry but to the point. You need to be reasonably au fait with statistics to read it. But if you are not you can still get a lot from it. Like all this Sage series it is no frills.

Summated Rating Scale Construction : An Introduction (Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences) 12 Sep 2005
By Thomas R. Payton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book to assist me with construcing an inventory for a project connected to my Master's Thesis. This book is an excellent guide for taking the reader through in a step by step fashion to construct effective Summated or Likert Scales. I would highly recommend this to any student or professional. It is also published by Sage Publications who has a well established reputation for their academic and scholarly publications.

So clear, so easy. Great starting point. 20 Dec 2008
By Roland B. Stark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A friendly, focused guide to constructing quality survey items and then distilling them into a scale that will convey more reliable, condensed information. Very clear in introducing key concepts involving correlation, internal consistency (Cronbach's alpha), and factor analysis. I frequently reread this book during my first two or three years of survey work.

To begin in the right direction 14 July 2012
By Juan Antonio Aguirre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Scale construction are a social scientist hurdle and this little contribution by Spector is a definite good guide. Summated Rating Scales can be a problem but Spector puts the reader in the right direction.One more for Sage, we buy regularly the material in this Series and this was one right decisiom.
