Summary
"An Introduction to Statistics in Psychology is the simplest approach to the wide range of elementary, intermediate and advanced statistics needed by undergraduate (and postgraduate) students in Psychology. It is designed to meet their needs at all stages in their studies. Together with the Guide to Computing Statistics with SPSS for Windows, the book provides a complete package aiding students not only to select and compute appropriate tests for their data, but also to interpret the statistics and report their findings." "This comprehensive text is written in an accessible and jargon free way. Short chapters ensure its suitability for modular study by allowing the instructor to tailor the material to their students needs." "Complex mathematics is kept to a minimum and concepts that are often difficult to grasp are explained step-by-step using a wide variety of examples."--BOOK JACKET
