•Not all tests are reviewed in any one printed edition of MMY. It may be necessary to consult several editions of the print version to locate a test
•Before 1985 (9th edition) the MMY main section wasn’t alphabetical by test title, so you need to use the indexes in the back of each volume
•Indexes refer to test entry numbers not page numbers
•All editions of the MMY in print are in the Library on the Main Floor in the Reference Collection
•Ref. BF 431 .M46
•Print is available for MMY 1 (1938) to the MMY 20 (2017)
Criteria for inclusion in the MMY series include:
•Tests must be commercially available
This document is the introduction pages from the 18th edition of Buros Mental Measurments Yearbook. These pages explain not only how to use the book, but also how to interpret each section of the test review entry. This information is equally useful when using the MMY Database.
•Includes full-text of test reviews
•MMY Online is updated every six months
•Online version is easily searchable by many fields
•Online version can be limited to Test Category (same thing as the Classified Subject Index in the print version)
