Drawing on scenarios, examples from everyday life and actual psychological studies, this handy guide uses words rather than numbers to introduce the key statistical concepts that all psychology students have to learn. Jones avoids calculations and formulae wherever possible and instead focuses on explaining the principles in a clear, straightforward and, above all, non-numerical style.
This novel approach makes the book a must for psychology students who want to understand the principles of statistics without dealing with tricky equations.
