Please take a look at this brief description of our forthcoming statistics for the behavioral sciences text, Using and Interpreting Statistics, by Eric Corty.

Clear explanations and a student-friendly approach are the hallmarks of Eric Corty's Using and Interpreting Statistics. Many students enter the Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences course anxious about their math skills, and Dr. Corty has responded with a text based on his many successful years teaching statistics in the college classroom. By emphasizing the practical applications of statistics, he refocuses students on a conceptual understanding before walking them through calculations with a careful, step-by-step approach. Plainspoken writing and thorough explanations help students understand difficult concepts the first time around, and the author's own end-of-chapter exercises are specially crafted to reinforce students' knowledge one concept at a time. Features such as "A Common Question," "How to Choose," "Worked Examples," and mnemonic devices help students master complex concepts, and finally, the author's signature focus on interpretation means students understand what the numbers mean and receive practice reporting results.
