Almost Makes Stats Not Suck, but Not Quite 11 July 2009
By Erin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a graduate student/veterinary resident taking a statistics course. This book is not required for my class, but "recommended," meaning that the instructor more or less follows this book for our lectures.

Having never had any type of stats class at all, I was pretty concerned about this class. In some ways, I still am, but this book is helping. It is pretty easy to read, and, most of the time, with each new concept introduced, there is an example to follow in the text. There are also questions to test yourself at the end of each chapter. The answers to these questions are in the back with decent explanations so if you get stuck, you can take a peek and "work backwards."

Overall, a good book especially for its target audience. Most examples are animal related. FYI...stats is still not cool. :)

Finally stats for my tiny brain... 12 Jan. 2001
By Luis B Gomez - Published on
Format: Paperback
First stats book that I have read that gives me what I need in minutes. It also explains the concepts and functions that I use everyday in a manner understandable for most earthlings.
Thank you.

An outstanding survey 19 April 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Interpreting statistical information is a part of veterinary and animal science: college-level students will find Statistics for Veterinary and Animal Science, 2nd Edition the perfect text for handling and understanding numeral data and statistics in the fields of vet and animal science. You'd expect such a book to be loaded with calculations and math: it's actually written in a non-mathematical way to emphasize underlying concepts and how to interpret computer output, and comes with a cd containing the datasets used in the examples. An outstanding survey which assumes no prior knowledge of statistics, this is a top pick for any college collection strong in veterinary science.

good basic statistics, "friendly" format 9 Feb. 2008
By E. Byrnes - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the recommended text for my biostats refresher course, so obviously the lecturers think it's good. Good basic stats book, good examples relevant to vet and animal science research. Lots of exercises to test your knowledge of the chapters.Has all the tables and formulas required, good glossary of terms. I found it fairly easy to read.
