Bartholomew brings a wealth of experience to this book, explaining all of the most fundamental concepts in statistics with insight but without technicalities. This is an excellent read for the learner or the teacher, to establish or reinforce a proper understanding of what statistics is really all about.
This is a rather thin volume that goes into depth of some introductory statistical concepts. I found the material to be too detailed for social science students on a research methods course. For students on a introductory statistics course it might be more useful; however, I would prefer a text that has practice activities, MCQs, and that embedded the concepts with actual research examples.
Students often worry that their mathematic skills (or lack thereof) will prevent them from carrying out quality research during their degree. This book forms a good foundation to ease students into statistics and outlines the central ideas in statistics such as variation very clearly. A good basic book for students to understand.
Great book which takes the fear out of statistics and give practical examples on what's behind the formulas.
This is an easy read and a good introduction to statistics for undergrad students who are less confident with numbers.
An excellent resource for students engaging with statistics for the first time in many years. The text eases students through the key concepts of statistics and how it is used without using mathematical symbols which many students find off putting.
I will recommend to my part-time students many of whom are re-engaging with the subject for the first time in 10 years.
A great text whose 'kerb appeal' will resonate with many: stats without mathematics seems to embrace the wish of many, and the text itself is configured in such a way as to embrace the reader. Very useful.
Great resource to support students learning about statistics
The course I teach is meant to also familiarise students with the mathematics. As such, I appreciate the book very much for its didactics, explanations and examples given - but will not use t first-hand in the course.
A useful text for students who might have a few misgivings about handling numbers during their research project. The title of the book is very appropriate.
It is an ideal book for students who need an introduction to statistics.
