Format: Paperback
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.

Always had a soft spot for this book since it was my basic stats class text. For the most part, it addresses the fact that most social science students aren't applied mathematicians and just let you get on with the procedure of doing statistical tests. It's generally well-written and accessible (although IMHO, the chi-square section could be tweaked a bit). It's a useful resource for social science research methods, but also, a bit expensive given what you actually get here - minus one star for the current price.

Road map to selecting statistical test for research study 27 May 2009
By Gregorio Billikopf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For a very long time I had been looking for a basic book--a sort of map if you will--to the myriad number of statistical tests available for conducting research. After speaking to multiple people and reviewing many books, I finally stumbled into two gems. The first one is Learning to use statistical tests in psychology by Judith Greene and Manuela D'Oliveira (209 pp.). I loved the second edition but bought the third edition, which follows a similar line. In the third edition, however, the most important feature of the book, a set of decision charts fell off. The third edition only includes one chart and so you better make sure it is included before you buy, or write to Open University Press and they will send you a PDF you can print and paste in the back cover. The book is interesting and reads like a page turning novel. The focus is on helping you decide which of the many statistical tests should be selected when conducting a research study. I was looking for a book that spoke about Likert-type questions and the analysis required (answer = Chi-square) and was surprised that Likert scales are not mentioned. The advantage of the Greene-D'Oliveira book is that it has the decision chart and is translated into Spanish (which is important for me). A week later I found the second book, Statistics in a Nutshell: A Desktop Quick Reference by Sarah Boslaugh and Paul Andrew Watters (O'Reilly, 452 pp.) that had everything I was looking for and more. The book is also very well written and entertaining. It has a better index and includes a discussion of Likert scales and the Chi-square. Besides being more thorough, Boslaugh-Watters provide a better discussion of statistical packages. If I could only choose one of the two books, I would purchase Boslaugh-Watters, but I am thrilled to have found both of these superb reference books.Statistics in a Nutshell: A Desktop Quick Reference (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly))
