I have a test with terms like "Performance IQ" and "Visual-Spatial", I would like to understand them better.
Can somebody recommend a book?

Performance IQ is often compared to Verbal IQ.

It there is a BIG DIFFERENCE (PIQ greatly exceeds VIQ or PIQ greatly exceeds VIQ), it *MAY* indicate an LD ('learning disability') diagnosis.

or

Here's a link to a fairly long and comprehensive article. It may be a bit dense, but does answer some of the questions you were asking. Part III is the part that's most relevant,especially the part about subtest scatter.

If it was easy to Google, I woudn't ask:-) I would like to really understand the terms, like understanding exactly what kind of problem I would be good or bad at.
