Fundamental Statistics for Behavioral Sciences Summary


Fundamental Statistics for Behavioral Sciences by Robert B. McCall

This text takes a traditional approach to teaching the basic statistical concepts and methods used in behavioral research. McCall emphasizes building an understanding of the logic of statistics rather than stressing the mechanics. Similarly, the data for computational problems has been kept simple, so students can focus on the rationale and outcome of techniques instead of the calculations themselves. Behavioral research issues are built into the problems and exercises.
