about

In Using Statistical Methods, Soleman Abu-Bader detects and addresses the gaps between the research and data analysis of the classroom environment and the practitioner's office. This book not only guides social scientists through different tests, but also provides students and researchersalike with information that will help them in their own practice. With focus on the purpose, rationale, and assumptions made by each statistical test, and a plethora of research examples that clearly display their applicability and function in real-world practice, Professor Abu-Bader creates astep-by-step description of the process needed to clearly organize, choose a test or statistical technique, analyze, interpret, and report research findings.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is a significant contribution to the pedagogical literature in this area, and one that I am planning on continuing using. . . . The strongest part is its integration of basic stats with the use of the SPSS software package, supported by detailed instructions for basic operations.Particularly helpful are the annotated screenshots, along with discussion of interpretation of findings, and the examples of how the results might be written up." --Christopher Hudson, Salem State College
