This is a highly accessible textbook on understanding statistics for the health sciences, both conceptually and via SPSS. The authors give clear explanations of the concepts underlying statistical analyzes and descriptions of how these analyzes are applied in health sciences research without complex statistical formulae. The book takes students from the basics of research design, hypothesis testing, and descriptive statistical techniques through to more advanced inferential statistical tests that health sciences students are likely to encounter. Exercises and tips throughout the book allow students to practice using SPSS.

Removing "maths" from the study of statistics does no one any favors.

This is rudimentary at best, and inaccurate at worst. Read the preface and the authors even admit that the trade-off for removing math is a lack of accuracy. Why should "health sciences" have to learn a watered-down, inaccurate version of statistics? Is there some benefit to this beyond playing into the fears some individuals have of math?

This is a required text for one of my classes in a graduate nursing program. I am HIGHLY disappointed that it was selected.
Easy to read, clear definitions. Helped me understand the information and get an A in the course!
Very difficult read. Written for statisticians not healthcare providers.
Not what I expected
Arrived as described, new in package wrapping
easy to follow, great book
A basic introduction to statistics for a beginner. Simple, straightforward approaches to the exercises and statistics software. This book demystifies statistics and I will recommend it for everyone.
this book was a requirement for my class data management
