Early Reviews of the Second Edition"I like the presentation of the summaries and exercises at the end of blocks of material rather than just at the end of the chapter . . . students need to start active work earlier on–they aren’t generally good at things quantitative and need frequent homework and review."–DR. JOHN PITTENGER, University of Arkansas, Little Rock On the integration of research methods and statistics: "I have been using several texts at the same time and have not found a text that combines [this] feature. I believe that this text can serve that function."–DR. RONAN BERNAS, Eastern Illinois UniversityAbout the Author:
BARRY H. COHEN, PhD, is the Associate Director of the master’s program in psychology at New York University, where he has been teaching statistics for more than fifteen years.
