Applied statistics for the behavioral sciences [Monograph] - 5th ed
Hinkle, D.E. \ Wiersma, W. \ Jurs, S.G. \ cop. 2003
statistics - regression analysis - analysis of covariance - data processing - analysis of variance - multiple comparison test - social sciences - probability distributions - behavioural sciences

This introductory text provides students with a conceptual understanding of basic statistical procedures, as well as the computational skills needed to complete them. The clear presentation, accessible language, and step-by-step instruction make it easy for students from a variety of social science disciplines to grasp the material. The scenarios presented in chapter exercises span the curriculum, from political science to marketing, so that students make a connection between their own area of interest and the study of statistics. Coverage focuses on concepts critical to understanding current statistical research such as power and sample size, multiple comparison tests, multiple regression, and analysis of covariance. Additional SPSS coverage throughout the text includes computer printouts and expanded discussion of their contents in interpreting the results of sample exercises.

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.
