Reviews

. . . the explanations of statistical procedures, examples of real research projects and their problems, and the chapter-end application exercises are so well done. -- Pamela Murphy I would very likely recommend this textbook to colleagues. I will also consider adopting this textbook for my course. I like the readability of the text as well as the examples given by the author to help the reader understand the topics. -- Tracy Walker The Suter text has a critical thinking approach that engages students and makes the topics meaningful and connected. -- David K Pugalee

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.
