“ I found the content to be well integrated and the links provided clarity to what is inherently a difficult and complex topic for students to understand. I thought the material was written in a clear and relatively engaging fashion for a statistics book.”

Kevin M. Beaver
Department of Criminology and CJ, Florida State University

“I absolutely love the self-test items. They require comprehension and application of the material covered in that section. They’re brief enough to not get tedious, but long enough to hit some of the more important points of that section.”

Heidi Legg Burross
Department of Educational Psychology, University of Arizona

“I really liked these end-of-the-chapter exercises because it will really force the students to 1) pay attention as they read through the chapters and 2) to identify areas where they may not fully understand so that they can go back and spend more time on these topical areas.”

Kevin M. Beaver
Department of Criminology and CJ, Florida State University

“I like the flow of the book and the chapters are put together in a way that builds on knowledge and flows in a logical manner.”

Laura Ringer
Department of Psychology, Newberry College

“I was impressed with how much information was covered in most of the areas and how specific (yet not necessarily technically cumbersome) the writing was.”

Kevin M. Beaver
Department of Criminology and CJ, Florida State University

“I believe my students would be more likely to click on these activities online than they are to work a problem in a traditional textbook, I also like the immediate feedback with explanation. The information is presented in a straightforward, easy to understand manner. The interactive online course, I believe, will be utilized more than a traditional textbook by our tech savvy students.”

Laura Ringer
Department of Psychology, Newberry College
