Review Text

    Great book to get started on research methods.

    I am a computer scientist interested in doing experiments with humans. There are many books on statistics out there, very few of them talk about "research design". This is something that students of psychology learn over the years, but I never found a quick straight-to-the-point guide. I just wanted a quick way to learn the thinking behind experimental design without having to go through all the math (until I actually need it).A nice feature of this book is the "decision chart", which is usually printed no the inside of the back cover. It is basically a summary to help you decide which statistical test is more appropriate for your needs. Unfortunately, I was quite disappointed when I saw that the chart was missing from the copy I received. I even asked Amazon for an exchange, and the second copy they sent me had the same problem. I think it's a problem with the printing of the whole batch (the chart should be there because it is referred to many times in the text, and appears in previous editions).

    I purchased this book in my first year of studying Psychology at university. This book has been a life saver! explaining all statistical t-tests, one-two tailed hypothesis and everything in between. If you are new to statistics for psychology then get this book!

    I have tried so hard to find a book which explain everything in basic.Most of books in Statistics,although they says it's a basic or fundamental level, use a lot of jargon words and obscure language which are very difficult to understand for a beginner like me.However,this book is very simple to follow.The writer explains core concepts of Statistics with easy language.It also contains case studies which can be used as models in other research.I would recommend this book for a beginner who are looking for step by step book especially for those who have no prior knowledge in the subject.
