"Designed specifically for those who are learning or using statistics for the first time, this text pays relatively little attention to unnecessary formulas while providing a basic overview of basic designs and analyses through real-world examples. Updating his text to include new information, particularly on ANOVA and confidence levels and limits, Coolidge actually is quite gentle introducing undergraduates to the basics. . .
