Review:

I would highly recommend this text to anyone – students or faculty - with questions about statistics or SPSS. The brilliance of this text is its straight forward prose. Herschel Knapp does a fantastic job of articulating what one needs to know about specific statistical tests and how to effectively use SPSS to analyze data. The brilliance of this text is its straight forward prose.

(Heather Carter-Templeton)

The new textbook by Herschel Knapp, Practical Statistics for Nursing Using SPSS, is a useful text to supplement a basic research textbook for students being introduced to the research process. It provides a clear and concise explanation of commonly used statistical tests and builds skills related to the use of SPSS.

(Jennell P. Charles)

This book is a very simple introduction into statistics. The author provides many very useful examples to help students comprehend difficult analyses. The SPSS examples and visuals are superior, as are the exercise at the end of the chapter.

(Daniel Rodriguez)
