Chris Spatz's best-selling statistics text relies on examples from the social and behavioral sciences, education, nursing/allied health, and business fields-as well as examples from everyday life-to teach students statistical reasoning and problem solving. Praised for his clear explanations, Spatz shows students how to start with a data set, identify the questions it poses, determine and carry out statistical procedures, and using plain English, tell the story the data reveal.

I have taught a psychological statistics course seven times since 1995 with this book: five times with the Fifth Edition (blue cover), and twice with the Eighth Edition (red cover). I selected it over many other competing editions because of the clarity and informality of Spatz' writing style.Students enter the course feeling high anxiety, but most of them enjoy the book and keep it rather than reselling it. The book has a good balance between the technical details and historical anecdotes. A study guide is available, but not needed.
As with other college textbooks, the publisher puts out new editions every three years, but the changes between editions are very minimal.. As a professor, I would be unable to justify rolling into a next edition; I change editions on the stat book about once every ten year.
CRITICISMS OF THE BOOK: (1) The author supplies an Inbstructor's Test Bank, but the multiple-choice questions in it are terrible. Most of the m-c items have combination answers ("Both A and B" or "All of the above." The combination answers bring in all the shortcomings of true-false questions. The majority of the m-c items are completely unusable ---- I write my own, instead. Am amazed that the m-c items, with all their deficiencies, are rolled forward into each new edition, unchanged. (2) A second criticism is that the homework problems at the end of each chapter are very time-consuuming to complete . For many chapters, it took me 4-6 hours to complete the exerecises; and I am the professor who already _knows_ the subject! The homework exercises take so long to do, not because they teach statistics so well, but rather because they include very large data-sets to which the statistical formulas must be applied. My philosophy is to keep data sets BRIEF, on the theory that, if the student can apply the formulas correctly to ten data-points, they can also do it to a larger data-set. On the first day of class, I now give students a two-page handout listing specific homework exercises, chapter-by-chapter, that can be skipped. This minimizes student's agony. (3) I skip coverage of two of the three chapters on ANOVA - analysis of variance. I do teach the basic one-way ANOVA chapter, but not factorial ANOVA or the within-subjects ANOVA . Skipping two chapters is justified because at UNM, basic statistics is merely a three-credit class, while at many other colleges four credits are earned. Still, despite these three shortcomings, I will continue to use Spatz 8/e as my textbook. Prof. Stephen Buggie, Psycghology, Univ. of New Mexico, Gallup NM 87301

I bought this book used for my Intro Statistics course to save some money... The book I received was in near perfect condition... As for the contents of the book itself, the chapters are very short (which I love) and explain things very well... In each chapter there are not just explanations of how various statistics are used and completed, but also short story-like examples to help you comprehend what you just read and how to put it to use. I found this part especially helpful and I really do think that the contents of this book was put into very easy to understand words...

I am glad my instructor choose this book because I have taken a stats class before this course and the book was not the best to use for an intro stats class.
This book has problems to work, it has an accompanied website, in addition, it has definitions and explanations for each definition and keywords in this book! It is so awesome and I understood immediately!
If you have taken several stats classes and you are comfortable with it then don't buy this book if you need a challenge. If you need a refresher then yes buy it!

I would suggest all college/ grad school introductory level -stat professors to use this book in your courses! It is that wonderful!!!

good book
