"Introductory Statistics for Health and Nursing Using SPSS is a highly applied introductory statistics text ideal for all health science and nursing students, who can be anxious and lacking in confidence when it comes to handling statistics. This book has been developed with this readership in mind. This accessible text avoids using long and off-putting statistical formulae in favor of non-daunting practical and SPSS-based examples. What's more, its content will fit ideally with the common course content of stats courses in the field."--Publisher's description.
