Derived from his bestselling text "Statistics for People Who (Think
They) Hate Statistics", author Neil J. Salkind presents readers
with The Excel Edition! Using the same personable and clear style
that made previous editions so successful, this new edition teaches
students how they can use Excel to learn the basics of statistics.
This is not a text on how to use Excel, rather it illustrates how
this program can make the statistics learning experience a better
one. Key Features: *Applies Excel to statistical techniques:
Introductory chapters present Excel as an accessible tool for
statistical analyses. Students are shown how to install the free
Excel Analysis ToolPak to earn access to a host of new and very
useful analytical techniques such as ANOVA, Correlation,
Covariance, Moving Averages, Regression, and more. In addition,
other Excel formulae illustrate reliability, goodness-of-fit, and
Chi-square.* Offers an unhurried pace and thorough presentation:
Using a non-intimidating, user-friendly style, this book walks
students through various statistical procedures, beginning with
correlations and graphical representation of data and ending with
inferential techniques and analysis of variance. Real-world
examples from a variety of settings illustrate the utility of
statistics and reinforce concepts introduced. *Provides valuable
teaching tools: Pedagogical features help present an often
intimidating and difficult subject in a way that is informative,
engaging, and clear. These tools include icons, tip boxes, further
readings, a glossary, the famous "Difficulty Rating Scale" and "Top
Ten" lists, and much more! In addition, an extensive Excel
functionality is located at the back of the book. Instructor's
Resources! Instructor Resources on CD are available to qualified
adopters of The Excel Edition. These resources include sample
syllabi, data sets, chapter overviews and objectives, chapter
outlines, PowerPoint slides, discussion questions and class
activities, additional resources, test items per chapter, and much
more!Intended Audience: This is an excellent textbook for
undergraduate and graduate students studying statistics in courses
such as Introduction to Statistics, Statistics Using Excel, Data
Analysis, and Research Methods. It is ideal for courses in which
Excel is the primary statistical package discussed.
