Description

Called the 'bible of applied statistics', the first two editions of the "Handbook of Parametric and Nonparametric Statistical Procedures" were unsurpassed in accessibility, practicality, and scope. Now author David Sheskin has gone several steps further and added even more tests, more examples, and more background information - more than 200 pages of new material. The Third Edition provides unparalleled, up-to-date coverage of over 130 parametric and nonparametric statistical procedures as well as many practical and theoretical issues relevant to statistical analysis. If you need to: decide what method of analysis to use; use a particular test for the first time; distinguish acceptable from unacceptable research; and, interpret and better understand the results of published studies, the "Handbook of Parametric and Nonparametric Statistical Procedures" will help you get the job done.show more

This handbook is carefully edited, and is written in a clear, jargon-free style. It is a useful reference book for practicing researcher as well as students who are just learning how to analyze statistics in a variety of fields. It is recommended for academic and special libraries, even libraries that already own the first or second edition of this title." - E-Streams, Vol. 7, No. 10, October 2004" useful to those wanting a single-volume reference on classical hypothesis tests" - Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Issue 167 (4) "The volume is potentially quite useful as a resource for finding something about a lot of different methods." -Journal of the American Statistical Association Reviews of the Previous Editions: "an impressive compendium a useful reference, particularly for researchers who use statistical methods as well as for statisticians who need a quick reminder on specific procedures and computations." - Journal of the American Statistical Association "A reference and teaching volume with so many strengths certainly a book that would be used repeatedly with its comprehensive information, integrative discussions, and well-directed reference lists following each test [it] provides the researcher in behavioral and medical sciences with a wealth of information" -Contemporary Psychology" a perfect guide to understanding and choosing the appropriate statistical test lays down clearly the basic foundation behind any statistical analyses by providing clearly the guidance to choosethe right statistical method I strongly recommend this book for students who are taking statistics classes." -Technometrics, May 2001 ..." useful to non-statisticians who want an in-depth understanding of the statistical tests that they use." -Biometrics, Vol. 57, No. 3, September 2001 "an impressive compendiumThe author has given much care to organization, notational consistency, convenience, user-friendliness, and examples in each chapter describing the tests.
