While providing excellent coverage for the norms used in a number of neuropsychological tests, the Handbook of Normative Data for Neuropsychological Assessment (Handbook) singles out for rejection a single set of norms, the Halstead Russell Neuropsychological Evaluation System (HRNES). The stated grounds for this rejection were not applied to any other of the several hundred sets of norms included in the book. The HRNES was rejected even though it fully meets the Handbook's selection criterion for tests to be included in the book.
