0 Reviews
Each statistical procedure in this text is presented in a conceptual, intuitive manner to illustrate how it fills a need in the process. Students anxious about math will benefit from a scaled back emphasis on the discipline, plain language, and a step-by-step approach that reintroduces, reviews, and reinforces procedures. In addition, references to psychology have been reduced to make the text more inclusive of all behavioral sciences.

The text has been revised to streamline the narrative without reducing content, make presentations more concise, and add more explanatory techniques. Nearly all examples include specific variables and questions rather than generic data, and most are taken from everyday life so that students gain an intuitive feel for the meaning of scores and develop an ability to think in statistical terms.
