J. Allen  May 15, 2011

I have used it for teaching undergraduate research and statistics and as a supplement for graduate level research. It is an easy to follow, well written book that students find useful. Step by step method for each and every equation, explaining what everything means and best of all. Even if you have used statistics for years, this textbook may provide insights into statistics you never had. This textbook, however, is an ideal first textbook on statistics.

Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


The bestselling Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics is now in its fourth edition! This text teaches an often intimidating and difficult subject in a way that is informative, personable, and clear.

Author Neil J. Salkind takes students through various statistical procedures, beginning with correlation and graphical representation of data and ending with inferential techniques and analysis of variance. In addition, the text covers SPSS, and includes reviews of more advanced techniques, such as reliability, validity, introductory non-parametric statistics, and more. Pedagogical features include sidebars offering additional technical information about the topics presented and points that reinforce major themes in the book.

Finally, this new edition includes more examples than ever before, an expanded set of exercises at the end of each chapter, and a more comprehensive glossary.

‘’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

‘’Your book is the best textbook I have ever read! It was so clear and concise and I loved the humor. I can't thank you enough for writing such a fantastic textbook.’’ - Kathy Culp, Student
