Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Your book has changed my perception and attitude towards statistics. It is very well written, the language is completely user friendly and the progression of new concepts within each chapter is fantastic. Although my class is only on chapter 5 at this point, I have found my interest in the concepts and order in which you introduce them becoming greater. I thank you with very much appreciation as I was someone who dreaded taking statistics and thought I hated it - Jessica Maes, graduate student

The Fourth Edition of Neil J. Salkind s bestselling text introduces students to the fundamentals of basic statistics in an informative, personable, and unintimidating way. The author expertly guides students through various statistical procedures, beginning with basic descriptive statistics and correlation and graphical representation of data and ending with inferential techniques including analysis of variance.

Book News Annotation:

In this update of the 2007 text, Salkind (emeritus, psychology, research in education, U. of Kansas) continues to introduce statistics as painlessly as possible. Chapters on the standard statistical concepts are rated for difficulty and sprinkled with cartoons. New to this edition are exercises using the latest versions of SPSS and Excel based on data sets available online, a chapter on the one-sample Z-test, mini-SSPS and math primers, and notes to instructors. The text includes practice questions with an answer key, a glossary, statistical tables with instructions on how to use them, and an open-access student study website.
