Statistics is generally not a dynamic topic. But Coolidge is able to break it down in a way that is manageable. His discussion of each type of analyses is easily accessed by the table of contents and accurately depicted in the index. This is especially important for this generation of learners who want easy access to the specific information that is necessary without waiting through extraneous concepts. Coolidge also describes contemporary and specific examples of how miss use of data can have an impact in real world circumstances.
It is the only book on the market that covers important advanced techniques such as repeated measures ANOVA and multiple regressions, using SPSS.
The book is written to address a broad range of student ability. It is helpful to students without a strong background in mathematics.
Good introductory book on statistics. Perfect for first-time statistics students, since concepts are presented simply but clearly.
As an instructor, I would want a hard-copy of this book.
I don't think I ever received this book
Adopted as a recommended text for students interested in diving more deeply into some of the concepts we cover (all too briefly) in a refresher course for incoming Masters of Public Policy students.
