Product Description

Review

...an invaluable introduction to statistical analysis of data....I would recommend this text to those embarking on PhD studies as it emphasises the need for planning before an experiment is performed.. Biologist (2004) 51 (3)

... this would be a good book with which to coax mathophobic students into good habits. This book is equation free and takes a very, very gentle approach. (TRENDS in Ecology and Evolution)

They approach each topic logically, and with excellent examples and case studies ... An important aspect of this book is the inclusion of key definitions ... I enjoyed reading this book, appreciated the unique approach, and have recommended it to my students as supplementary reading. Experimental Design for the Life Sciences has found a permanent place in my library of experimental design material. (BioScience)

It may well prove to be the most useful textbook in biology for years. (Trond Amundsen, Norwegian University of Science and Technology)

It's this determination to make this vital topic available to all that sets this book apart. This, along with the simplicity of the structure and the very reasonable price means that this should be seen as a vital must-by in this topic area. (TEG NEWS)

I really liked this book.

It's easy to read, and can be read at leisure (I find it hard to concentrate on some text books). Its quite small, making it attainable to read the whole book, and it will improve the way you approach experimental design.

I'm a PhD student, so have designed a few experiments in the past. This book really pin points what you should be thinking about and why in a clear concise way. Its good at emphasising why you should take time to do certain things, and also what you should do if those things just aren't feasible. It also gives examples to illustrate points.

Is it essential? Probably not. I'm sure most people in science are aware of the key concepts, but this book reminds you of them, which is important.

Is it helpful? Definitely. It helps focus all the things you know about, but don't quite have a full grasp on.

Will it help you design better experiments? I'd say yes, and if, for whatever reason, you can't follow its advice, it will prepare you for the types of criticism you will face.

Who is it best suited for? I'd say people doing a life science degree, master's course or beginning a PhD could benefit from this book.

I found this very informative and well-written .

I read it straight through as I wanted an overview of the subject to prepare for a course but you could dip in and out easily; it's very well laid out, with clear headings, subheadings, examples and boxed definitions in the margins.

If you're at all awed by the topic of experimental design this book will cut it down to size for you.

Arrived on time & in perfect condition due to considerate packaging. It explains the concepts of experimental design in clear, plain English. I would recommend this for life science students.

I like this book because unlike others it does not focus on the statistics of experimental design,
instead its easy to read and understand.
