The Bestselling Student-Friendly Statistics Textbook is Completely Updated

Field has introduced important new introductory material on statistics... This book is the best blend that I know of a textbook in statistics and a manual on SPSS.-David C. Howell, University of Vermont (Emeritus)

Written in his vivid and entertaining style, Andy Field continues to provide students with everything they need to understand, use and report statistics-at every level-in the brand-new Third Edition of Discovering Statistics Using SPSS. Retaining the strong pedagogy from previous editions, he makes statistics meaningful by including playful examples from everyday student life (among other places), creating a gateway into the often intimidating world of statistics. In the process, he presents an opportunity for students to ground their knowledge of statistics through the use of SPSS.

What is NEW in the Third Edition: Expands on the first 6 chapters to more gently introduce basic level conceptsComplies with the new SPSS 17Offers a stunning new 4-color textbook design to illustrate SPSS 17 mechanisms (at no additional cost to students )Contains an additional chapter on multilevel modelingIncorporates playful real world examples to go alongside those made up by the author Includes both new and more robust pedagogical features

This new edition is accompanied by an updated Companion Web site at www.sagepub.co.uk/field3e designed for both professors and students

Student resources include:

Animated SPSS walk-through videos clearly demonstrating how to use the latest SPSS modulesSelf-checking multiple choice questionsDatasets for Psychology, Business & Management andHealth SciencesA flash-card glossary for testing knowledge of key conceptsAccess to support material from SAGE study skills books

The password-protected instructor's section offers:

A test bank with over 300 multiple choice questions ready to upload to WebCT, Blackboard or other virtual learning environments Electronic charts and diagrams for classroom usePowerPoint slides written by the author

Synopsis:

Andy Field's self-deprecating, vivacious but yet easy to understand writing style has won him many plaudits, and now an award from the British Psychological Society (2007), for his irreplaceable Discovering Statistics Using SPSS. The Third Edition is now even more accessible to the introductory student at the very beginning of their statistical journey. The textbook now uniquely walks students from very basic to advanced level concepts, all the while grounding knowledge though the use of SPSS. Accompanied by an improved Companion Web site at www.sagepub.co.uk/field3e including animated SPSS walk-throughs of tests discussed in the textbook; assessment materials and datasets pertinent to lecturers/instructors in Business & Management and Health Sciences; and a suite of other materials for lecturers/instructors and students as per the 2nd Edition. The original CD-Rom materials are now found on this Web site as well.

Synopsis:

SPSS Step by Step is a concise overview for beginning and intermediate statistical test users. Clearly writtenandmdash;and without relying on mathematical formulasandmdash;it covers topics such as qualitative data analysis, multiple regression, survival analysis, and factor analysis. A logically ordered guide to analyzing everyday problems, it will prove invaluable for undergraduate and postgraduate students and academics undertaking or teaching research and will also be of interest to professionals in social work, criminal justice, health, and education.
