Overview

The third edition of Audiology Workbook is composed of an abundance of questions and activities designed as a means for undergraduate and beginning graduate students to reinforce their knowledge of concepts and procedures covered in introductory hearing science and clinical audiology courses. This third edition of Audiology Workbook is an appropriate supplement to any introductory audiology textbook and/or class lectures, and focuses on exercises and questions that are beneficial for any traditional audiology undergraduate or beginning AuD course in hearing science and audiology principles and procedures.

The Audiology Workbook includes activities such as drawing and 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. Activities are comprehensive and designed so that they may be solved with relatively short answers and useful for group discussion.

NEW TO THIS 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, as well as a chapter on the vestibular system and its assessment. 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.

The popular case studies have been revised into a more consistent format with answers written similar to how they might be done in a clinical audiology report. There are exercises designed to reinforce knowledge of auditory disorders, and a chapter entirely devoted to case studies in order to help students learn how to integrate basic diagnostic test results and relate them to a variety of hearing disorders.

About The Authors

Steven Kramer

Steven Kramer, PhD, is a Professor in the School of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at San Diego State University, where he has been a faculty member since 1985. He is also the Co-Director of the Audiology Doctoral (AuD) Program offered jointly by San Diego State University (SDSU) and the University California San Diego (UCSD). Dr. Kramer served as the department chair from 1990-2001. He obtained his master’s and doctoral degrees in audiology and hearing science from the University of Florida. He is a licensed and certified audiologist, and continues to be active in clinic. Before his appointment at SDSU, he was a clinical faculty at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. His teaching assignments have included a wide array of courses, including diagnostics, medical audiology, evoked potentials, and anatomy/physiology. His research experience concentrates on diagnostics, including the use of auditory evoked potentials and otoacoustic emissions to describe normal auditory function, as well as the application of these measures for improving the evaluation of certain clinical impairments, especially infants at-risk for hearing loss.
