The second edition of the Audiology Workbook is packed with activities and questions related to concepts and procedures traditionally covered in introductory audiology and hearing science courses. The workbook is designed for undergraduate students in speech and hearing as well as students beginning graduate studies in audiology.

The Audiology Workbook includes activities such as drawing labeling diagrams, drawing waveforms, calculating frequencies/periods, amplitudes, and phases, interpreting audiograms, speech tests, tympanograms, acoustic reflexes, and auditory brainstem responses. There are also questions to reinforce knowledge about hearing disorders, as well as basic understanding of hearing aids and their fittings.
