Amazing Purchase.  March 27, 2011

This textbook which I rented from ecampus, describes the use of statistics in user-friendly, non-technical language to show readers how to choose the appropriate statistic based on the design, interpret output, and write about the results. The authors prepare readers for all of the steps in the research process, from design and data collection, to writing about the results. Discussions of writing about outputs, data entry and checking, reliability [censored]sment, testing assumptions, and computing descriptive and inferential parametric and nonparametric statistics are included.






Ibm Spss For Introductory Statistics: Use And Interpretation, Fourth Edition: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
