BASIC STATISTICS FOR THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES demystifies and fully explains statistics without leaving out relevant topics or simply presenting formulas, in a format that is non-threatening and inviting to students. The author’s clear, patiently crafted explanations, with an occasional touch of humor, teach students not only how to compute an answer, but also why they should perform the procedure or what their answer reveals about the data. The book achieves several objectives: it presents a conceptual-intuitive approach, presents statistics within an understandable research context, deals directly and positively with student weaknesses in mathematics, and introduces new terms and concepts in an integrated way. The result is a text that students can learn from as well as enjoy.

David Howell’s practical approach focuses on the context of statistics in behavioral research, with an emphasis on looking at data before jumping into a test. This provides students with an understanding of the logic behind the statistics: why and how certain methods are used rather than just doing techniques by rote. Students move beyond number crunching to discover the meaning of statistical results and how they relate to the research questions being asked. FUNDAMENTAL STATISTICS FOR THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES contains an abundance of real data and research studies as a base and moves through an analysis of data.

Focused on principles and techniques, this book provides a conceptual, intuitive approach to applied statistics that replaces proofs and derivations with examples and illustrations. The focus throughout is on the usefulness of statistics and content is organized according to statistical applications, not statistical assumptions. Emphasizes informed applications of statistics — but provides a balance of applications and theory. Explores the statistical procedures that are most useful in the social and behavioral sciences — with a focus on essential concepts and techniques needed in order to begin to evaluate data and read research literature in the behavior sciences. Groups statistics by purpose, not assumption. Demonstrates appropriate applications as well as computational mechanics and interpretation. Shows that statistics is not the study of numbers, but the study of people, cities, and the concerns of the everyday world.

Though briefer than Statistical Methods for Educational and Psychology, Third Edition, the approach of BSBS-III is the same: conceptual rather than mathematical. The authors stress the understanding, applications, and interpretation of concepts rather than derivation and proof or hand-computation.
