By providing an overview of descriptive and inferential statistics without formulas and computations, this text helps students who are struggling with statistical concepts. With its clear and to-the-point narrative and easy-to-digest layout, this short text is perfect for all courses where statistics are discussed. New to the Fourth Edition: greater coverage of correlational statistics with the addition of two new sections: Section 15 (Scattergram) and Section 16 (Multiple Correlation). Also new: a new section (Section 18) that explains the relationship between sample size and statistical significance.
