I enjoy Ary's clear examples when he introduces a concept. Each example ensconces itself within a real-life situation even when the concept gets complicated (like ANOVA). I used the sixth edition in my course. I plan to keep this one during my doctoral training for reference.

Required textbook -- while it's a fairly easy read, there are SO MANY mistakes in the book, especially in the charts and graphs. I spent hours trying to make sense of one table, asking other people to work the problems, and everyone came up with the same answer...which was different from the book. The professor worked through the problem and realized the textbook was incorrect. That was the first of many issues that were discovered over the course of the semester. If you have to have this edition (or even future editions) be careful with the numbers!

Beware of this book! It is full of errors... equations and answers are incorrect in MANY of the tables throughout the book. Our professors are telling us the right answers but it is annoying and you don't know which other things may be wrong as well. Ugghhhh!!!!

Two chapters in for a grad class and I find the text to be readable and not unpleasant. In terms of research, book will not make up for understanding basic statistics. Could have included a primer for that. Why not go that extra mile? Many'll come to the class w/o that info in their back pocket. Less than ideal description of variables -- a bit confusing unless you have external knowledge. Good grip on chasm between theory and practice and the negative implications that provokes between research and its alter ego, practice. Not too many book choices -- had to go with professor's class textbook. Do exercises at the end of each chapter to reinforce comprehension of material.

I would love it if it was a little more usable. This is one of the few books I've bought that I can't do the side by side page view. However, I do like it becuase it was cheaper than buying the textbook from the bookstore here on campus.

contents in the book is exactly what I needed. Very helpful information for the class I am currently taking. The book itself was in very poor shape. I've had the book for two weeks and the binding has fallen apart. The pages seemed as if they were photo copied. Probably paid way too much for the book because of the quality of the book.

This book is written in an easy-to-read manner with pertinant information for preparing and writing a research based report. I used the book for a research class and thought I would not need the book. I am grateful I purchased it as it helped me so much. I love the writing and the useful information.

I'm using this text for a quantitative methods course at the doctoral level and I think it is a great text. It is very easy to follow. It will definitely be a book that I keep in my collection and will be very valuable during the dissertation writing process.

Again this purchase was made for my husband as I have preciviously stated before. In fact he has two of these books. He is a retired teacher and is in end-renal failure and he works with other dialysis patients while he is at the clinic.

The book itself is quality. However, I was told it was "Like new" when it was not. The book I received had some highlighting and the pages were barely attached as the binding was separating. I was not overly impressed with it.
