A practical approach that demystifies statistics

Statistics for the Behavioral and Social Sciences, 6th Edition, builds off a unique and well-¿established approach of emphasizing the intuitive, de-emphasizing the mathematical, and explaining everything in direct, simple language. By using definitional formulas to emphasize the concepts of statistics – rather than the rote memorization – learners work problems in a way that keeps them constantly aware of the underlying logic. 

In the new edition, Aron, Coups, and Aron maintain the acclaimed hallmark features, while incorporating user feedback, their own teaching experiences, and advances and changes in the field. With a focus on simplifying the exposition, updating the content, and making the book more effective overall, this revision promises to increase reader interest and learning.
