"I like the clear references and examples for difficult topics, especially research methodologies and various types of analyses. Students tend to be fearful of statistics and research, in general, when they start the course, so a text that provides a lot of practical information in a readable, understandable way is important."

As with any educational text, it is best to be overviewed with a professor/Instructor. If you chose to read and study on your own there is no doubt to be unanswered questions and much difficulty. If you are only using the book for review then you should be fine.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
