Many years ago (before the "age of the computer") statistics were calculated by hand. Statistics instructors had to place so much emphasis on the math and getting the right answer that the meaning of the statistic was lost. Many students became frustrated and developed a negative attitude toward the subject of statistics. If you know someone who took a statistics course more than a decade ago, they'll probably be able to tell you a few horror stories.
It's all different now!
About ten years ago, statistics instructors changed the way they taught statistics. The emphasis was no longer on math and formulas. It was now on:
There is still an abundance of "old school" instructors and books out there. Any book store will be able to provide you with a statistical analysis textbook that has lots of formulas. There are also many full-featured statistical analysis software packages available. Type "statistical analysis software" into any search engine and you'll find over a dozen of them. The one I wrote is called StatPac for Windows. If that's what you're after, then you don't need to hear about the special offer I've put together here.
My suspicion is that you're looking for a statistics book that explains statistical concepts in plain English and an easy-to-use statistics software program to go with it. That's why I've put together a great combination of two products: Survival Statistics and the Statistics Calculator.
Survival Statistics is a statistics book unlike any other. It focuses on concepts: what statistic you need for a given situation, how to interpret the statistic, and how to make a statement with the statistic. The Statistics Calculator is a fill-in-the-form software program to perform statistical significance tests on summary data and sample size estimation. It takes arithmetic out of process and lets you focus on results instead of formulas.
Buy both products together and get a huge discount!
Survival Statistics ($29.95) + Statistics Calculator ($39.95)
