Discovering statistics using SPSS (and sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll) [Monograph] - 3rd [fully upd.] ed
Field, A. \ cop. 2009
statistics - statistical analysis - data processing - computer software - methodology - programming - sampling - distribution - linear models - data analysis

In this edition an important new introductory material on statistics is introduced that the student will need and was missing at least in the first edition. This book is a textbook in statistics and a manual on SPSS. It is a balanced composite of both topics, using SPSS to illustrate important statistical material and, through graphics, to make visible important approaches to data analysis. Fully revised and restructured, this new edition is even more accessible as it now takes students through from introductory to advanced level concepts, all the while grounding knowledge through the use of SPSS Statistics. While still providing a very comprehensive collection of statistical methods, tests and procedures, and packed with examples and self-assessment tests to reinforce knowledge, the new edition now also offers: a more gentle introduction to basic-level concepts and methods for beginners; new textbook features to make the book more user-friendly for those learning about more advanced concepts, encouraging 'critical thinking'; a brand new, full-colour design, making it easy for students to navigate between topics, and to understand how to use the latest version of SPSS Statistics; both 'real world' (the bizarre and the wonderful) and invented examples that illustrate the concepts and make the techniques come alive for students; an additional chapter on multilevel modelling for advanced-level students; and, reinforced binding to make the book easier to handle at a computer workstation. The book also includes access to a brand new and improved companion Website, bursting with features including: animated 'SPSS walk-through' videos clearly demonstrating how to use the latest SPSS Statistics modules; self-marking multiple choice questions; data sets for psychology, business and management and health sciences; a flash-card glossary for testing knowledge of key concepts; and, access to support material from SAGE study skills books. Statistics lecturers are also provided with a whole range of resources and teaching aids, including: the test bank; over 300 multiple-choice questions ready to upload to WebCT, Blackboard or other virtual learning environments; charts and diagrams in electronic format for inclusion in lecture slides; and, PowerPoint slides written by the author to accompany chapters of the text.

Webb, P. \ Bain, C. \ 2011
epidemiology - public health - textbooks - Epidemiology

he new edition of this popular textbook remains a clear and practical introduction to epidemiology for students in all areas of health. By emphasising the role of epidemiology across a broad range of health monitoring and research, it gives students an understanding of the fundamental principles common to all areas of epidemiology. It also integrates the study of infectious and chronic diseases as well as public health and clinical epidemiology. Avoiding complex mathematics, it steps through the methods and potential problems underlying health data and reports, while maintaining a balance of rigour and clarity. The nuts-and-bolts of epidemiology are embedded in the wider international health perspective through recent and classical examples across different areas of health to engage students from a range of backgrounds. Concepts are illustrated with charts and graphs, and end-of-chapter questions test understanding (with answers provided). Online resources include further exercises, slides for teaching and useful weblinks.
