### Description:

Derived from his bestselling text Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics , author Neil J. Salkind presents readers with The Excel Edition ! Using the same personable and clear style that made previous editions so successful, this new edition teaches students how they can use Excel to learn the basics of statistics. This is not a text on how to use Excel, rather it illustrates how this program can make the statistics learning experience a better one. Key Features: Applies Excel to statistical techniques: Introductory chapters present Excel as an accessible tool for statistical analyses. Students are shown how to install the free Excel Analysis ToolPak to earn access to a host of new and very useful analytical techniques such as ANOVA, Correlation, Covariance, Moving Averages, Regression, and more. In addition, other Excel formulae illustrate reliability, goodness-of-fit, and Chi-square. Offers an unhurried pace and thorough presentation: Using a non-intimidating, user-friendly style, this book walks students through various statistical procedures, beginning with correlations and graphical representation of data and ending with inferential techniques and analysis of variance. Real-world examples from a variety of settings illustrate the utility of statistics and reinforce concepts introduced. Provides valuable teaching tools: Pedagogical features help present an often intimidating and difficult subject in a way that is informative, engaging, and clear. These tools include icons, tip boxes, further readings, a glossary, the famous "Difficulty Rating Scale" and "Top Ten" lists, and much more! In addition, an extensive Excel functionality is located at the back of the book. Instructor's Resources! Instructor Resources on CD are available to qualified adopters of The Excel Edition. These resources include sample syllabi, data sets, chapter overviews and objectives, chapter outlines, PowerPoint slides, discussion questions and class activities, additional resources, test items per chapter, and much more! Intended Audience: This is an excellent textbook for undergraduate and graduate students studying statistics in courses such as Introduction to Statistics, Statistics Using Excel, Data Analysis, and Research Methods. It is ideal for courses in which Excel is the primary statistical package discussed.

Neil J. Salkind received his PhD from the University of Maryland in Human Development. After teaching for 35 years at the University of Kansas, he remains a professor emeritus in the department of psychology and research in education, where he continues to collaborate with colleagues and work with students. His early interests were in the area of children's cognitive development, and after research in the areas of cognitive style and (what was then known as) hyperactivity, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of North Carolina's Bush Center for Child and Family Policy. His work then changed direction to focus on child and family policy, specifically the impact of alternative forms of public support on various child and family outcomes. He has delivered more than 150 professional papers and presentations, written more than 100 trade and textbooks, and is the author of Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics (SAGE), Theories of Human Development (SAGE), and Exploring Research (Prentice Hall). He has edited several encyclopedias, including the Encyclopedia of Human Development, the Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics, and the recently published Encyclopedia of Research Design. He was editor of Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography for 13 years and lives in Lawrence, Kansas, where he likes to read, swim with the River City Sharks, letterpress print using 1820s technology, bake brownies (see the Excel version of Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics for the recipe at http://www.statisticsforpeople.com), and poke around old Volvos and old houses.
