- Shows how to design an experiment in the best possible way to investigate the topic of interest
- Explains which associated analysis will best answer your research question

Organized so that the reader moves from the simplest type of design to more complex ones, the authors introduce five different kinds of ANOVA techniques and explain which design/analysis is appropriate to answer specific questions. They show how to perform each analysis using only a calculator to provide the reader with a better "feel" for the analyses than simply seeing the mathematical answers on a computer print-out. The book concludes with tips for tests on ANOVA, and descriptions of how to use the knowledge gained from the text to determine the credibility of claims made and "statistics" presented in various types of reports.
