“The text is comprehensive and provides easytofollow, practical applications for statistical methods, as well as the theory that undergirds each test. The hands on, SPSS tutorial orientation of the text encourages students to ‘dive in’ and start ‘swimming.’” — Sherri Seyfried, Chicago State University “This book is a significant contribution to the pedagogical literature in this area, and one that I am planning on continuing using. . . . The strongest part is its integration of basic stats with the use of the SPSS software package, supported by detailed instructions for basic operations. Particularly helpful are the annotated screenshots, along with discussion of interpretation of findings, and the examples of how the results might be written up.” — Christopher Hudson, Salem State College USING STATISTICAL METHODS IN
