Top customer reviews
But - older and wider (and wiser), I bought the text books rather than borrowed from the library and this was really helpful when studying my psychology degree...
The book has been donated to a charity shop rather than kept because it has be superseded - and means if my children choose to study psychology - I'm going to experience a whole world of pain again - when buying expensive text books...
so, DO consider before you make the choice of this book.
hopefully the author and the publisher can give a newer version soon. admittedly, it could have been a very good guide book for stats in psychology.
