This text is designed to help students become knowledgeable readers of cross-curriculum quantitative research literature. It provides a clear inviting view of quantitative research strategies for those students who may or may not have a mathematical background. The authors impart a conceptual understanding rather than teach calculational methods. The text can be used as a supplement for a basic statistics course or for any course requiring students to read and digest quantitative research literature. Examples are cross-curriculum and generic. Its strength is that it is very brief and doesn't overwhelm with too much detail.
