Audiology Workbook, Third Edition is a companion to the textbook, Audiology: Science to Practice, Third Edition, by Dr. Steven Kramer and Dr. David Brown. It also can serve as an appropriate supplement to any introductory audiology textbook or class lectures. The Workbook focuses on exercises and questions in hearing science and audiology principles and procedures that are beneficial for speech-language or audiology undergraduates and those beginning an AuD graduate program. It is also a great study resource for the Audiology Praxis Exam.

The third edition of the Audiology Workbook is composed of an abundance of questions and activities designed to reinforce students' knowledge of concepts and procedures that are, traditionally, difficult to master. There are questions and activities on properties of sound, such as drawing waveforms; calculating frequencies/periods, amplitudes, and phases; anatomy and physiology of the auditory and vestibular systems; and interpreting audiograms, speech tests, tympanograms, acoustic reflexes, and auditory brainstem responses. There are also questions to reinforce knowledge about hearing disorders, including an entire chapter on basic clinical cases. The activities are comprehensive and designed so that they may be solved with relatively short answers and useful for group discussion. Comprehensive answers are also included for each chapter.

New to the Third Edition

The Audiology Workbook has been extensively revised from the previous edition. This edition updates, expands, and reorganizes material from previous editions but retains the features that worked well, including detailed answers for all of the exercises. More exercises have been added in traditionally difficult areas such as properties of sound, anatomy/physiology, audiogram interpretation/description, and masking. In addition, there are now separate chapters on immittance, OAEs, and ABRs. New to this edition is a separate chapter on vestibular anatomy, physiology, disorders, and assessments for those who wish to learn more about this area of audiology.

A new chapter is devoted to the popular case studies found in the previous editions. The case studies have been revised into a more consistent format with answers written similar to how they might be found in a clinical audiology report. The exercises are designed to help students learn how to integrate basic diagnostic test results and relate them to a variety of hearing disorders.

This workbook is a companion to the core textbook Audiology: Science to Practice, Third Edition.

  • The textbook is a comprehensive and challenging resource for undergraduate courses in audiology and hearing science, and for graduate students beginning an AuD program, especially those who may not had a previous background in the subject.

Audiology: Science to Practice, Third Edition Bundle (Textbook and Workbook)

Overview

Audiology: Science to Practice, Third Edition Bundle (Textbook and Workbook) is a comprehensive and challenging textbook and companion workbook for undergraduate courses in audiology and hearing science, and for graduate students beginning an AuD program who may not have a previous background in the subject. It is designed to cover the content of both two-course sequences (Hearing Science and Principles of Audiology) as well as combined courses—providing a level of consistency in presentation. Chapters cover hearing science, diagnostic procedures, an introduction to hearing aids, and extensive coverage of anatomy and physiology of the auditory and vestibular systems. The Workbook focuses on exercises and questions in hearing science and audiology principles and procedures that are beneficial for speech-language or audiology undergraduates and those beginning an AuD graduate program. It is also a great study resource for the Audiology Praxis Exam.

Topics in the textbook include information about the profession of audiology, anatomy and physiology of the auditory and vestibular systems, acoustics, audiometry and speech measures, audiogram interpretations, masking, outer and middle ear assessments, otoacoustic emissions and auditory brainstem responses, hearing screening, hearing aids, cochlear and other implantable devices, and an overview of vestibular function, disorders, and assessment. There is also a chapter describing common auditory disorders, supported with expected audiologic data.

New to the Third Edition Textbook

  • Four new chapters: Outer and Middle Ear Assessment (Chapter 10); Evoked Physiologic Responses (Chapter 11); Implantable Devices (Chapter 15); and Vestibular System (Chapter 16)
  • References and figures have been updated, including photos of new hearing instruments and amplification devices
  • The chapter on Hearing Aids is now more appropriate as an introduction suitable for undergraduate students
  • Access to a PluralPlus companion website with PowerPoint lecture slides for instructors, James Jerger's chapter on the history of audiology, and selected resource links for students
