“The author has a wonderful way of taking complex material and presenting it to an already anxiety-filled audience in a manner that not only sets students’ nerves at ease but facilitates their learning to apply the material in useful ways. This text should be required reading in all beginning-level stats classes if for no other reason than to build confidence in the students.” (Christopher J. Maglio)
“There is no extraneous information in the text. It's what students need to know, presented in a way that does not intimidate.” (Adriana Buliga-Stoian)
“The word statistics is often seen as a nasty word to social scientists but Salkind deals with that and makes it somewhat enjoyable for the students and an absolute joy for the instructors.” (Dr. David F. Nicholson)
“It is easy to follow and great for learning . . . My students absolutely love the book.” (Soomi Lee)
“I truly think this is the best statistics book I have encountered." (Daniel R. Block)

Continuing its hallmark use of humour, this text helps students develop an understanding of an often intimidating and difficult subject with an approach that is informative, personable, and clear. Author Neil J. Salkind takes students through various statistical procedures, beginning with descriptive statistics, correlation, and graphical representation of data, and ending with inferential techniques and analysis of variance. In addition, the book covers SPSS and includes reviews of more advanced techniques, such as reliability, validity, and introductory non-parametric statistics. The new Fifth Edition offers more examples than ever before, and a new Real World Stats feature at the end of each chapter.
