How nonspecialists can make use of statistics and data

Students at university may be expected to analyze complex data and present your findings, whatever their area of study. This guide teaches the skills needed to make sense of data and numbers, and the confidence to use them effectively. Through practical exercises, readers will also learn how to interpret statistics and data, conduct surveys, evaluate and question results, and present numerical information clearly.

Review:

'I find that book fascinating. It is very well laid out, examples clear and concise and sequencing user friendly.' Shirley Garner, UK `Numbers attempts, very successfully, to deal with the tricky area of numeracy from a more in-depth perspective. Typically, EAP texts focus on the area of describing graphs without necessarily addressing the broader areas of research methodology and interpretation of data. (...) This title is essential for Foundation courses but would also be useful for students aiming for an IELTS of 7.0 or above in the graph section of the writing paper. It offers extended insights on the description and analysis of data.' Sharon Chalmers, Director of Studies, Live Language, Glasgow (full review published by BEBC Review Panel http://www.bebc.co.uk/bookreviewcassnum)
