Health and nursing students can be anxious and lacking in confidence when it comes to handling statistics. This book has been developed with this readership in mind. This accessible text eschews long and off-putting statistical formulae in favour of non-daunting practical and SPSS-based examples. What's more, its content will fit ideally with the common course content of stats courses in the field.
Introductory Statistics for Health & Nursing using SPSS is also accompanied by a companion website containing data-sets and examples for use by lecturers with their students.
The inclusion of real-world data and a host of health-related examples should make this an ideal core text for any introductory statistics course in the field.
Great book for students who need to use SPSS.
This book is a very good match for our new Practical Data Analysis module. The range of content reflects our syllabus closely, and does not stray into more complex and potentially frightening (for students) territory. Explanations are clear, and the layout is attractive, making the book very accessible.
it would certainly help my students, particularly those who have been asked to do a research, to grasp the concepts and see the wider picture."
Excellent resource, very specific and very important for nurses, I appreciate it, Thanks for editor
Very useful. Complex concepts presented in a simple form.
Not appropraite reading for this module
I was very impressed with this book's simple and clear presentation. Having a lot of screen prints is very helpful for students as they pick their way through SPSS for the first time. The subject matter is presented clearly and in a professional tone which is very suitable for motivated postgraduate students.
Still prefer Salkind's statistics book for overall simplicity and integration with SPSS.
Good, clear, step by step instructions for working in SPSS. Explanations are relevant, with a focus on nursing and health care, and useful to students when learning about statistical analysis and when writing their reports.
This book does what it says on the cover
