The best-selling introduction to statistics for students in the behavioral and social sciences, STATISTICS FOR THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES continues to offer students straightforward instruction, accuracy, built-in learning aids, and real-world examples. Authors Frederick Gravetter and Larry Wallnau help students understand statistical procedures through a conceptual context that explains why the procedure was developed and when it should be used. The authors offer students numerous opportunities to practice statistical techniques through learning checks, examples, demonstrations, and problems. Instructors value the unparalleled ancillary package that accompanies this book, now including JoinInTM on TurningPoint content for Personal Response System "clickers."
