Statistics and Data Analysis for Nursing Research 2e
Denise F. Polit, PdD
Users praised the accessibility, clarity, and user-friendliness of the first edition of Statistics and Data Analysis for Nursing Research. Now, the push for evidence-based practice (EBP) in nursing and health care makes this new edition timely. The style and practical emphasis of the first edition have been retained, but important innovations have also been introduced, making it even easier to embark on a professional pathway that includes statistical analysis. As in the first edition, the content includes descriptive statistics, bivariate inferential statistics, and many widely-used multivariate statistics. It assumes virtually no prior knowledge of statistics.
NEW TO THIS EDITION

· SPSS Version 16.0 was used to generate output for the book

I was very surprised with this book; Polit not only made statistics understandable, but she uses plenty of examples to drive home the point. Even if your course does not require this specific book, get it anyway: it will make a world of difference.
