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
