Dunn, author of The Practical Researcher: A Student Guide to Conducting Psychological Research, brings his twelve years of statistics teaching experience to life in the new Statistics and Data Analysis for the Behavioral Sciences.

He incorporates APA style in examples and an appendix to expose students to the expected style of prose. For students with math anxiety or who just need a refresher on basic mathematical functions, he has included an appendix so that faculty are not forced to spend class time reviewing these basic concepts.
