Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book ensures first that the process is understood and second that the role of the computer is integrated into analysis by using computer printouts for students to work with. . . It is valuable. I recommend it to my students and use it as a reference text myself." 

(Christine Howard Evaluation and Research in Education)

"The exercises are excellent. I think the use of real examples gives relevancy and meaning to the concepts." 

(Holly S. Gimpel)

"The author takes great effort to walk students through concepts with both discussion and illustration." 

(Steve Seitz)

"The author’s clear, concise writing style is one of the strengths of the book. He does a very good job of breaking down complex ideas into their simpler components and presenting the information to the reader." 

(Jerome McKean) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The presentation is crystal clear and exercises helpful.
James Sunderland
As much as I appreciate the attempt to write a book on statistics for the social science field that is easier and relevant, I think this book falls short.
Bonner A. Davis
Most managers are consumers rather than producers of statistical information.

Format: Paperback
This is a comprehensive book covering all the major topics that a student would need for the statistics modules in various social science courses. Managers need to have an understanding of statistics so that they are able to manipulate the numerous masses of data that come their way into meaningful and useful information that they can employ in making decisions in organisations.

The author presented the material in the book in a clear and in-depth manner, making it suitable for social science students studying statistics or carrying out research required statistical manipulations. The author also provided several examples and exercises that should assist the reader in consolidating his/her understanding of the concepts described in the book.

Most managers are consumers rather than producers of statistical information. This book equips you with the expertise to enable you to be an informed consumer who knows the right questions to ask and the kind of information to request from those who produce the statistical information in the organization.

Aside from the surprising number of errata in this book, Sirkin does a great job explaining a wide range of foundational statistical concepts in one good volume.

Format: Hardcover
As much as I appreciate the attempt to write a book on statistics for the social science field that is easier and relevant, I think this book falls short. Having taken a class in psychological statistics, college algebra and trigonometry and finite math, I assumed this book would be fairly self-explanatory and straightforward. However, I found myself continually lost in explanations and jargon. What would have made this book better is that it be converted into or accompanied by a workbook. Math, in any field, that is written in "textbook format" loses the student by too much verbiage and not enough interaction.

This is an easy read that is good for someone getting back in school. Slow paced with good exercises. One of 4 required text, this is the preferred.
