Great reference and learning guide for advanced statistics. Huck! Huck! Huck! 0. Report. If you have to take Statistics, at least get this book! By Thriftbooks. com User, March 18, 2002. I've said it before, and I will say it again. I hate Statistics! It is not just that statistics originated as a means to classify and rank people according to their perceived social worth. Statistics is still used that way as evidenced by the publication and use of the book The Bell Curve.

At the same time, the number of people encountering the results of different investigations has expanded even faster, almost geometrically. Journals, newspapers, television and radio programs worldwide present thousands of scientific papers and results each year.

Reading Statistics and Research [Jan 01, 1974] Huck, Schuyler W

I am an academic physician who does clinical research. I am not a statistician and for the most part statistical analysis for my research projects are conducted by professionals in this area. However, I needed to get a better understanding of what my statisticians do so that I can communicate better with them and interpret the clinical research I read. This text was the course textbook in a statistics class I took while getting a master's degree in academic medicine at USC. It is by far the very best text I've ever read from the standpoint of helping a non-statistician's interpret statistical works. It is not meant to teach its' reader how to do statistics but rather how to interpret them so the low score reviews on Amazon that were looking for mathematics and work through problems in the text are looking at the wrong book. That was never the author's stated claim for the text. If you want to do statistics look elsewhere. If you want the very best book for learning how to interpret them then this is the text to get.
Reading Statistics and Research by Schuyler W. Huck should be part of every education student's reference library because he
is a great explainer of all the different elements that are involved in statistics and educational research. Huck's book provides the student
of education with the necessary background information to critically examine a journal article, to examine the design and results of a statistical study, and to avoid certain common errors that educational researchers sometimes make. Reading Statistics and Research is not a primer or 'how-to-do' statistics book for the novice. Ignore critical reviews that fault his book for this aspect as this was not his stated purpose for writing the book as mentioned in the preface of the book. A+++++ book and fun and informative to read.
As a doctoral student who is trying to get a handle on statistics, I found this book very helpful. Huck does a nice job of supporting what you learn in statistic classes (all the formula and theory `stuff') with real world interpretations and examples. I find his book to be a good resource when I am reading and critiquing journal articles, and when I am trying to word my statistical results in appropriate research vernacular.
Please note - this book is not a stats how to book and as such contains no formulas.
This text, which was required for a graduate course I am taking, has excellent resources included to help you with the subject matter. There are internet sites you can visit to get more in-depth on any sections you choose, as well as a supplementary site by the author with extra articles, self-quizzes, etc...The material is a bit dry to read at times, but overall it's interesting and is divided up into sections that make it easier to read.
Clarity for tough topics. One of the best textbooks I've ever used. I've gone back to it several times, trying to clarify poorly presented material from other courses.
Love this easy-to-understand book for my Statistics class. I love that every concept is easy to understand.
This book was SO great for my Stats class! Statistics is such a tedious and complex subject, and Huck really makes every single subject so clear, readable, understandable, and -- make sure you're sitting -- even a little interesting...!!!! Highly recommended for anyone who is not a stats whiz by any stretch (like me) and needs to understand it! But I could imagine that even a statistics expert would enjoy reading all of these sophisticated concepts laid out so clearly and simply. Thank you, Prof. Huck!
One of my favorite books from college. I bought this copy to help my son understand stat. We'll see...
