Front Cover
Macmillan International Higher Education, Sep 15, 2010 - Psychology - 240 pages
A refreshing and much-needed introduction to statistics in psychology for students who 'don't get numbers'. Jones breaks from the traditional, numerical approaches, drawing on non-numerical examples and scenarios from both psychological literature and everyday life to explain key statistical concepts. This is an ideal companion to core textbooks.
