This is an excellent and thorough introduction to statistical analysis. It is easy to follow and provides complete coverage of key concepts in introductory courses. This book will be useful and popular across various fields including the health sciences, management, and social sciences.--Ronald Heck, University of Hawaii
Raykov and Marcoulides are able to seamlessly demonstrate how to run statistical analyses such as ANOVA and multiple regression in R, avoiding the steep learning curve that students working for the first time with R usually face. Their presentation of statistical concepts is easy to follow, and the R examples are appropriate for students who have never used statistical software before.--Walter Leite, University of Florida
