DESCRIPTION

For students who need to understand and use statistics but find the mathematical formulae daunting, Statistics without Maths for Psychology is the ideal guide. The clear, straightforward style and step-by-step SPSS walkthroughs take you through all the statistical procedures you will need. Activities and questions enable you to test your learning and increase your understanding in a practical, manageable way. This is a clearly written and beautifully presented text. The style is ideal for those who are new or nervous about statistics, as it supports their understanding in a friendly and easy to follow way. Dr Jennifer Murray, Edinburgh Napier University In teaching statistics to undergraduates for a number of years, I have found this textbook provides an accessible yet sophisticated grounding in conceptual and practical aspects of quantitative psychology. I recommend it without reservation. Professor Richard Rowe, University of Sheffield Statistics without Maths for Psychology can also be packaged with MyResearchLab, an online resource covering key qualitative and quantitative research topics, packed with interactive digital learning tools, testing facilities and robust feedback for both students and teachers. To find out more about this exciting and powerful new resource or to request your free trial access, please contact your Pearson representative.
