"This book speaks to students!"(Lewis H. Margolis)
"A well written, well organized and understandable introduction to statistical reasoning, use, and what meaning they may have… the reader will have a much better grasp of statistics and a better ability to consume social science research."(Ralph Underwager, Institute for Psychological Therapies)
Written for anyone who wants to learn or brush-up on the basics of statistics but is anxious of their abilities, this book offers a step-by-step introduction to the topic. The book begins with an introduction to the `language' of statistics, and then covers descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. Throughout, the author offers readers: a `Difficulty Rating Index' for each chapter's material; Tips for doing and thinking about a statistical technique; top tens for everything from the best ways to create a graph to the most effective techniques for data collection; steps that break techniques down into a clear sequence of procedures; SPSS tips for executing each major statistical technique; and time to practice exercises at the end of each chapter, followed by worked out solutions.
The book concludes with a statistical software sampler and a description of the best Internet sites for statistical information and data resources. Readers also have access to a website for downloading data that they can use to practice additional exercises from the book.
Students and researchers will appreciate the book's unhurried pace and thorough, friendly presentation.
