In addition, there is coverage of using SPSS (and lots of data sets for hands-on experience), a review of more advanced statistical techniques, coverage of reliability, validity, introductory non-parametric, and more.

Finally, questions to chapter exercises and a complete glossary are located at the back of the book.… (more)
