5.0 out of 5 stars Great statistics book :-) 27 April 2011
I found this book great as an introduction to understanding the different statistics used in Psychology and would recommend it to anyone studying Psychology. As the title suggests, it is the explanations without the slightly scary equations and set out in a clear and digestible way, with easy to read examples and clear outputs illustrating what to expect from SPSS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book for Psychology Undergraduates 14 April 2014
By Sophie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book when studying for my Psychology undergraduate degree to help me understand what I thought to be the more complex side of Psychology. Having not had much experience with statistics previous to studying Psychology at university I found this book to be invaluable in my studies. The information in this book is presented in small easy to read chapters with a small summary at the end of each chapter making this a really easy book to understand. Unlike other textbooks I have used this one is written without all the complex jargon usually featured in psychology books. This book was not only helpful in increasing my understanding throughout the year but also when it came to revision. I would 100% recommend this book for anyone looking to study a psychology undergraduate degree, or any other degree which features stats!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 2 April 2014
Such a student-friendly book, it really helped me to understand statistics in my first year, which has benefitted me greatly throughout my degree! The books layout is really clear and easy to follow - especially useful when getting to grips with SPSS. Really recommend.

Bought this last year to help me get over the shock of having to do so much stats! Worked like a charm, and got me through it all with no probs. Now I've started Year Two, I find I'm already dipping into it to help make sense of a lot of the level 2 stuff. Totally recommend it to anyone starting their psych degree (and to hold on to it for Year 2, too!).

This book is definitely a must have for anyone looking to study research and design analysis at university level. It is easy to follow and takes every effort to explain statisical analysis in a non-numerical fashion making it understandable and the examples given, digestable. I would thoroughly recommend it, it has given me confidence in sitting my exams and passing them well!
