3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Anna S. Mueller on October 24, 2012
Format: Paperback
I am a sociology professor who teaches stats regularly. This is a solid book with interesting relevant examples from actual research. The practice problems in the textbook are great. The book comes with several interesting datasets you can make available to your class. The powerpoints are fairly useful. In general, I am really happy with this textbook. I use it in my intro to social stats class. My students find it accessible. Importantly, its also relatively affordable. That's why I assign the "Essentials" instead of the "full" version of the text (which I also have).

There are a lot of people, especially a segment of students in the social sciences, who struggle with statistics and data analysis because o the math aspect. This book breaks down the process, and the math, into tiny, manageable steps, and looks at data analysis in a way that non-mathematicians can understand it.

The Professor had to explain a lot of this book. After reading a chapter i was lost but then she broke it down and it all made sense. Glad I was able to rent it, but Chegg is cheaper. Found this out after the fact tho.
