Deze bundel is voor het vak psychodiagnostiek voor het tweede jaar van de studie psychologie aan de uva. De bundel bestaat uit hoofdstukken uit verschillende boeken die geslecteerd zijn door de uva. Besproken wordt hoe diagnostiek plaatsvind en hoe het het beste kan worden gedaan. Sommigen van de hoofdstukken zijn in het Nederlands, en anderen in het Engels (dit hangt af van de oorspronkelijke taal van het boek). De eerste drie stukken zijn vrij in te zien, voor de rest is een (gratis) wordsupporter account nodig.
