Summary
  • This book offers a quick and basic guide to using SPSS and provides a general approach to solving problems using statistical tests. It is both comprehensive in terms of the tests covered and the applied settings it refers to, and yet is short and easy to understand. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate level test user, this book will help you to analyse different types of data in applied settings. It will also give you the confidence to use other statistical software and to extend your expertise to more specific scientific settings as required. The author does not use mathematical formulae and leaves out arcane statistical concepts. Instead, he provides a very practical, easy and speedy introduction to data analysis, offering examples from a range of scenarios from applied science, handling both continuous and rough-hewn data sets. Examples are given from agriculture, arboriculture, audiology, biology, computer science, ecology, engineering, epidemiology, farming and farm management, hydrology, medicine, ophthalmology, pharmacology, physiotherapy, spectroscopy and sports science.
