Statistics for the Terrified
Intended as a supplemental text for courses in statistics and research methods; as a refresher for students who have already taken a statistics course; or as a primer for new students of elementary statistics.
Statistics for the Terrified, 3/E, is a user-friendly introduction to elementary statistics, intended primarily for the reluctant, math anxious/avoidant person. Written in a personal and informal style, with healthy doses of humor and encouragement, the aim of the text is to help students make the leap from apprehension to comprehension of elementary statistics. It presents state-of-the-art self-help strategies (based on the cognitive behavioral techniques of rational emotive therapy) that help students manage their math anxiety so they can relax and build confidence while learning statistics.
