This article reviews the Test of Memory and Learning: Second Edition (TOMAL-2), published by PRO-ED, which constitutes a recent revision of the Test of Memory and Learning (TOMAL; Reynolds & Bigler, 1994). Advertised as the "single most comprehensive memory battery available for the entire age range of 5 years through 59 years of age", the TOMAL-2 is an individually administered, 14-subtest instrument designed to assess broad-band verbal and nonverbal memory functions of clinical interest across the age-span, narrow-band memory skills like paired-associate learning and spatial memory, and learning via changes in recognition and recall across multiple trials. It is intended to be administered by examiners with some formal training in standardized assessment. Examiners are encouraged by test authors to investigate and acquire the necessary credentials in the state of practice to use this individually administered test of ability, however. It is also suggested that examiners carefully study the test manual and practice administer the TOMAL-2 at least twice before formally using the instrument. (Contains 1 table.)
