Book Nook: An Introduction to Psychometrics

People always ask me for recommendations for a good intro book on psychometrics. Until recently, there have been no such books. There are older texts by Thorndike and Nunally, and a boat load of highly topic-specific advanced books (IRT; factor analysis, etc.), but few books suitable for a first course in psychometrics.

I recently ordered the above book and have been skimming sections when I find time. I believe that this is probably one of the better contemporary introductory texts on psychometrics. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more about the basics of psychometrics.
