The authors' extensive teaching experience is clearly evident as care is taken to explain those concepts which are commonly misunderstood or which students struggle with most." - Sarah Bayless, Department of Psychology, University of Winchester, UK
"A highly accessible introduction to applied statistics in psychological research. It succeeds in clearly explaining core concepts, while avoiding mathematical complexities that typically cause readers to lose their way. My students invariably rated the first edition of this book very highly. This second edition will remain my first choice." - Sander Los, Department of Cognitive Psychology, Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

The Student/Lecturer dialogues are the most engaging aspect and it brings statistics for Psychology well within the understanding of most Arithmophobes. The author has clearly used his experience of teaching Psychology statistics in this book and I would highly recommend all Psychology students get this book. The book clearly and concisely deals with not only mathmatical theory of statistics in an accessible manner, but also gets to grips very easily with the vagaries of SPSS, with step by step explanations from how to input data and obtain analytical results, to explaining how to read and interpret the results. With practical exercises along the way, I believe this text is a must.
My only gripes are that 1) The online accompaniement is not yet available and 2)the layout of the book could be a little better. i.e, it's difficult, when asked to compare two graphs to flick back & forth over several pages... However, I suspect that this is more of a publisher's issue.
