Thoroughly revised, with new content and many new practice examples, this text takes the reader from basic procedures through analysis of variance (ANOVA). While learning statistics, students also learn how to read and interpret current research.

Class-tested and developed over two decades, the material for this innovative text reflects recent changes in both research practice and in the teaching of statistics for psychology: 1) Statistics are done by computer, not by hand, so the text stresses deep understanding, not brief explanation followed by the usual plugging numbers into formulas. 2) The majority of psychology majors are human-and word-oriented, not math-oriented, so this text employs their way of learning--for example, requiring them to put what they learn into words lay persons can understand.From the Back Cover:
