Product description

Review

George Argyrous' book is an invaluable resource to students taking introductory methods courses where SPSS is used, and I had much success and positive feedback when I included it on the syllabi of my quantitative methods and political analysis courses. It is a strong text for instructors who need an engaging textbook that covers the topics that constitute the core elements of undergraduate and postgraduate quantitative methods courses in the social sciences. A particular strength of this book is that it combines readable text on the basics of research design and quantitative methods with clear instructions on how to implement the material using the SPSS software program Thomas J. Scotto, Lecturer, Department of Government, University of Essex




Statistics for Research: with a Guide to SPSS explains how to use some of the most common statistical tests using example relevant to the types of analyses undertaken by a wide range of social science researchers. The accompanying explanations of how to both undertake the tests using SPSS, and report the results appropriately, make the guide a comprehensive and ideal companion for researchers particularly those who are new to, or use quantitative methods infrequently


Jane Wellens
University of Nottingham




The book is an excellent general statistics text, with the key advantage of using SPSS to illustrate the concepts. The book would be a good text for undergraduate students on a range of social science courses or postgraduate students taking Foundation Research Methods


Steve Strand
University of Warwick, British Journal of Educational Psychology




This is a book that I wish I'd had on two occasions in my life; the first when I started statistics as a psychology undergraduate and the second, many years later, when I embarked upon a research degree in councelling and psychology. The author provides a logical introduction to applied statistics and research methodology, clearly and carefully linking the two. After demonstrating each relevant statistical technique 'by hand', using well-chosen examples from both the health and the social sciences, he then demonstrates how it can be carried out using SPSS... The book is accompanied by a companion website which provides valuable additional material both for the student and the lecturer. I can thoroughly recommend this book.
