 IQ testing...

Can someone point me in the right direction... I'm looking for good
books/papers on IQ tests. I'm interested in different scales (testing methods)
and cultural affects.
Are there any programs that administer the test?
Thanks,

Leon Kamin, "The Science and Politics of IQ," is a good book on the
subject, as is Stephen Jay Gould's "The Mismeasure of Man," but
I'm not sure if they're exactly what you're looking for.

You can be tested by Mensa, 718-934-3700 (NY) in many cities, but
after reading the Gould (and the other?) book mentioned by the
other respondent, you may be less eager for IQ testing.

I was tested by Mensa in the UK when I was about 16 but they seemed
eliteist so I did'nt persue it. I have been interested in these tests
and their validity since. I cant seem to find the Gould book (except
in french?!) but I'm trying.
Thanks to all who replied.

Looking in the psychology section of any large book store will get you all
the pop-psychology books on the subject.  Try the psychology text book
section of a university book store for more academic treatments.  For
serious research check the Psychological Abstracts in the university's
library.

Many colleges and universities have psychometricians on staff.
Psychologists and psychometricians in training are always looking for
vict ... er ... subjects to practice on (worth what you pay for it).
