RRP - £27.50 - you save £2.50

Choosing and Using Statistics remains an invaluable guide for students using a computer package to analyse data from research projects and practical class work. The text takes a pragmatic approach to statistics with a strong focus on what is actually needed. There are chapters giving useful advice on the basics of statistics and guidance on the presentation of data. The book is built around a key to selecting the correct statistical test and then gives clear guidance on how to carry out the test and interpret the output from four commonly used computer packages: SPSS, Minitab, Excel, and (new to this edition) the free program, R. Only the basics of formal statistics are described and the emphasis is on jargon–free English but any unfamiliar words can be looked up in the extensive glossary. This new 3 rd edition of Choosing and Using Statistics is a must for all students who use a computer package to apply statistics in practical and project work.
