Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic book for introducing statistics for psychology, and many other social sciences. The book covers any topic you would ever need, including basic hypothesis testing, correlation, ANOVAs and many non-parametric tests (this is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of topics covered). Each topic is split into decent sized chapters where is concept is explained in depth, and is then accompanied by hand worked calculations which are exceptionally clear to follow. Some chapters also show how to interpret SPSS output for some statistical tests, showing exactly how to interpret it and how to write the statistics up in APA format which academic journals use. I should note that the SPSS sections do not explain how to run the SPSS tests, but simply interpreting the output so do not buy this thinking it is an SPSS manual. Additionally, there are questions (with answers) at the end of each chapter so you can see how well you have understood the concepts. Overall, this is probably the best stats book out there, and the clarity and depth at which this book goes, means that for psychology and the social sciences, this will likely be the only book you will ever need.

It has provided a lot of help with the statistics module in Psychology, and has explained in enough detail. It is especially helpful for those who had not done statistics before.

I reviewed this once before. What cubby hole in limbo did it end up in?

Anyway...a super introduction to statistics. Howell is totally outstanding at explaining things.

Way too many typos though. His editors get low marks from me. Even so, a great book. (Howell has a lot of great stuff on his website too.)

Arrived really quickly (much quicker than expected!) and in perfect condition. The text itself is less 'entertaining' than others stats books (e.g. Andy Field), but gives more detail and I find it easier to follow, as I don't get distracted by the examples..!

Very useful but I had to use other books to explain SPSS properly. However, in my opinion, this book explained SPSS the best out of all of the books I have. Very glad I bought it.
