What it does
Statistics Without Maths for Psychology is conceived, written and designed to help students enjoy statistics as well as enable them to understand statistical concepts . This, the 3rd edition, continues the good work of previous editions and remains a valuable tool for overcoming students' fear of the subject .
How it is done
Statistics Without Maths for Psychology provides an accessible description of the key statistical concepts and techniques needed by psychology students. These concepts are explained clearly and without reference to underlying formulae. The authors take the approach that statistics is best taught by 'doing' and they provide a wealth of exercises, activities and multiple choice questions to enable students to practice their knowledge and skills. The use of SPSS for Windows (SPSSFW) in conducting statistical analyses is explained in detail and is fully integrated throughout the text. The book also provides comprehensive guidance on interpreting and reporting the output from SPSSFW.
