Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This author team is committed to making statistics a highlight for psychology students! Now, in a 5th edition, Statistics for Psychology, continues to be an accessible, current, and interesting approach to statistics. With each revision, the authors have maintain those things about the book that have been especially appreciated, while reworking the text to take into account the feedback, their our own experiences, and advances and changes in the field.

 

The fifth edition of this popular text uses definitional formulas to emphasize concepts of statistics, rather than rote memorization. This approach constantly reminds students of the logic behind what they are learning, and each procedure is taught both verbally and numerically, which helps to emphasize the concepts. Thoroughly revised, with new content and many new practice examples, this text takes the reader from basic procedures through analysis of variance (ANOVA). While learning statistics, students also learn how to read and interpret current research.

 

Synopsis:

Pearson’s MySearchLab is the easiest way for students to master a writing or research project.  In a recent student survey, the overwhelming majority of students are assigned writing and research projects, for which they would use research and citation tools if they were available to them.  MySearchLab is a website available at no additional charge in a package with a Pearson textbook and is also available as a standalone product.

Synopsis:

This book brings to life the compelling underlying logic of statistical methods so that readers can not only do the computations, but also truly understand what they are doing and remember what they have learned for years to come. This book covers the basic introductory statistics and methods including central tendency and variability, inferential statistics (Z scores, the normal curve, sample versus population, and probability), the t test, the analysis of variance, correlation, prediction, and more. For research analysts and reporters in the field of psychology.
