Does the thought of taking a statistics course make your students nervous? Authors Frederick J. Gravetter and Larry B. Wallnau use interesting real-world examples and applications to quell student fears and to reveal the ESSENTIALS OF STATISTICS FOR THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES. Students will go beyond thinking of statistics as part of a course they take and will come to appreciate it as a growing field that helps us make sense of data in our information-laden, information-dependent world. Gravetter and Wallnau skillfully demonstrate how having a basic understanding of a variety of statistical procedures will help students understand published findings, as well as become savvy consumers of information. The authors' intuitive, explanatory writing style and use of numerous learning checks allows students to test their understanding before exam time.

Review:

"The writing is one of the text's greatest strengths and I would not attempt to improve it. Another strength lies in the writing and organization of Chapters 7 and 8, which introduce hypothesis testing. These chapters are unusually good, which is important, because of the central role the concepts play in future topics."

"What I love about the textbook and what makes me recommend it to anyone who will listen is the level at which it is written. Too often I review statistics texts that (I feel) are above an introductory level. They don't spend enough time on the fundamental concepts that students need to understand before they move on."

"It seems appropriate for both strong and weak students. I'd quickly recommend this text to others to gain a readable and engaging presentation that is accuratge, clear, and concise. This text is one of the best out there - for both students and instructors."

"This text is very readable and student-friendly, and presents the material at a level appropriate for our undergraduate psychological statistics course.... There are ample examples from psychological research and from statistical software output."
