Description:

Jackson's text successfully illustrates the integration between statistics and research methods by demonstrating the ways to use statistics in analyzing data collected during research. Jackson's combined text adopts an inviting narrative style that speaks directly to students and draws them into the material, overcoming the initial apprehension students may feel at having to learn both subject areas at once. She incorporates a student-friendly critical thinking approach and presents examples and exercises to which students can relate. Jackson clearly focuses on the logic of the process and the methodology aspect of research.
