Summary: Does the thought of taking a statistics course make your students nervous? Authors Frederick Gravetter and Larry B. Wallnau use interesting real-world examples and applications to quell student fears and to reveal the ESSENTIALS OF STATISTICS FOR THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES. This book helps students get beyond thinking of statistics as merely a course they have to take and come to appreciate it as a set of essential tools that helps us make sense of data in our informati moreon-driven world. Gravetter and Wallnau skillfully demonstrate that having a basic understanding of a variety of statistical procedures will help students understand published findings, as well as become savvy consumers of information. The authors employ an intuitive, straightforward writing style as well as numerous learning checks, both of which support students' interest in and understanding of the material.
