Do you need help with statistics? Are you confused by the wide range of statistical tests and their uses?
Statistics Explained clearly outlines the major statistical tests used by undergraduates in psychology and the social sciences. It provides easy-to-understand explanations of how and why they are used and makes statistics much less of a burden. This book:
* is a simple introduction to statistical concepts and ideas
* shows you when to be sceptical about statistics
* helps you to understand the results of statistical analysis by computer.
Expanding and revising the best-selling first edition, the author has included new material which throws light on the mysteries of the general linear model, power, reliability and factor analysis, whilst other areas have been fully up-dated. Unobtrusive cross-referencing makes this the ideal companion to SPSS Explained, also published by Routledge.
Statistics Explained can be dipped into so that readers can see why a specific analytical procedure was developed and what it is best used for. Readers can also analyse their own data by following the worked examples provided.
