Review:

'The mathematics behind the tests is always given in considerable detail. This is admirable and helps students to see the logics behind the tests...I like the exploration of the various options for the tests he discusses, and the discussions of the pros and cons of specific variants of tests' - Nurse Researcher (David C. Howell )

"It is definitely the best written stats book I've seen. I found myself reading through it like a novel, just because I found it interesting. In addition, I like that it is well-integrated with the SPSS information, and I think the students will really appreciate it, too."
(Kimberly Dasch )

Synopsis:

This award-winning text, now fully up-to-date with SPSS versions 16 and 17, is the only book on statistics that you will need! Fully revised and restructured, this new edition is even more accessible as it now walks students through from introductory level to advanced level concepts, all the while grounding knowledge through the use of SPSS. Andy's humorous and self-deprecating style and the book's host of characters make the journey entertaining as well as educational.While still providing a very comprehensive collection of statistical methods, tests and procedures, and packed with examples and self-assessment tests to reinforce knowledge, the new edition now also offers: a more gentle introduction to basic level concepts and methods for beginners; new textbook features to make the book more user-friendly for those learning about more advanced concepts, encouraging 'critical thinking'; a brand new full colour design, making it easy for students to navigate between topics, and to understand how to use the latest version of SPSS; both 'real world' (the bizarre and the wonderful) and invented examples illustrate the concepts and make the techniques come alive for students; an additional chapter on Multilevel Modelling for advanced level students; and, reinforced binding to make the book easier to handle at your computer workstation.

The book also includes access to a brand new and improved companion website, bursting with features including: animated 'SPSS walk-through' videos clearly demonstrating how to use the latest SPSS modules; self-marking multiple choice questions; datasets for psychology, Business and Management and Health Sciences; a flash-card glossary for testing knowledge of key concepts; access to support material from SAGE study skills books; and access the demo website online. Statistics lecturers are also provided with a whole range of resources and teaching aids, including: the test bank; over 300 multiple choice questions ready to upload to WebCT, Blackboard or other virtual learning environments; charts and diagrams in electronic format for inclusion in lecture slides; and, PowerPoint slides written by the author to accompany chapters of the text.
