This textbook is a FANTASTIC summary of all possible research that can be done on clinical/counseling psych grad programs. I cannot say enough good things about this textbook! I would recommend it to anyone/everyone interested in attending clinical/counseling psych grad school or to anyone that has any type of interaction with potential students. I purchase my college textbooks through ecampus and the purchase is very smooth. The price is very suitable and the textbook arrived earlier than the delivery date and in a very good condition for a used textbook exactly as a described. I highly recommend this vendor.
