Summary
    Fundamental Statistics for the Social, Behavioral, and Health Sciences presents students with instructional material in a clear, concise manner and features exercises that get students thinking about how to use statistics in applied settings.

    The text opens with coverage of foundational concepts in descriptive statistics, including frequency distribution, central tendency, and variability. Additional chapters guide students through their first journey into inferential statistics.

    The book is highly accessible, features clear examples and graphs, and challenges students to apply what they learn to a variety of situations. It includes step-by-step instructions on using IBM SPSS Statistics.
