## An Introduction to Statistics in Psychology: A Complete Guide for StudentsFocusing for the first time on the current needs and teaching methods for both students and lecturers, this represents acomplete package for teaching statistics to psychology undergraduates. As well as a core textbook introducing topics in an accessible, jargon-free way, a separate book, A Guide to Computing Statistics with SPSS for Windows, shows how to apply the concepts in practice. An additional Instructor's Manual provides the lecturer with multiple choice and other assessment material. Concepts that are often difficult to grasp, such as multivariate analyses, are explained step-by-step using many examples from published research. The package covers everything necessary for an undergraduate psychology student and is therefore useful at various levels within a course. Instructor's Manual is available. |
