Written by an experienced researcher and successful teacher, this book aims at teaching the concepts and logic of Statistics to college students. It may be used as a textbook in classes for the non mathematically minded, or, ideally, as a companion to typical Statistics textbooks.

Concepts and examples of normal, t- , and F-distributions. Examples through ANOVA one-way, repeated measures, and factorial designs. Ideal for non-mathematicly minded students and researchers.

A simple stats book, at last!, July 18, 2010

This review is from: Statistics for College Students and Researchers: A practical approach with only 5 formulas! (Paperback)
I've been using stats for many years now, and I had always been overwhelmed by the theory and formulas involved. This book finally explains statistics in a way that even high school students can understand. Or, for that matter, scientists that apply stats without being statisticians themselves. Basic concepts are explained in a very simple manner, which makes even more complicated concepts intuitive to understand. Full of interesting (and amusing) examples. In short, I find it an excellent introductory statistics book, for anyone who wants to apply statistics, or at least understand the statistics we hear in everyday life.
