So many Alz tests include spatial items-which I already stink at. Hopefully tests can be developed utilizing a person's know strengtihs...maybe someone is a sports nut who knows all the baseball stats - test them now and then continue to test to see if they lose knowlege in an area they are good in now.
I would do good in verbal and possibly math but am already terrible at spatial ideas and remembering things like patterns of blocks lighting up for example. So...test me now on verbal and math and continue to test as the years go on.
Test me on directions and "what two shapes go together to make this big shape" and I already fail! : )
