A Crash Course in Statistics



February 2018 | 96 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

A Crash Course in Statistics is a short introduction to key statistical methods including descriptive statistics, one-way and two-way ANOVA, the t-test, and Chi Square. Each of the five chapters provides an overview of each method, and then walks readers through a relevant example, using SPSS to highlight how to run the statistics and how to write up the results in APA style. Each chapter ends with a self-quiz so that readers can assess their understanding of each statistical concept. This “crash course” supplement is a must-have statistics refresher for students taking research methods classes; a handy additional reference for introductory statistics students; and a guide for anyone who needs to be a consumer of statistics.

Some students seem to panic when faced with statistics. This is a very easy to read book that helps students digest statistics in small chunks.
