Master Teacher and writer Roger E. Kirk brings two clear goals to the Fifth Edition of STATISTICS: AN INTRODUCTION: to provide a sound introduction to descriptive and inferential statistics and to help students read and understand statistical presentations in their field. Kirk provides guidelines to help you decide when to use various procedures, and how to understand the logic of the procedures. This revision includes a complete update, focusing specifically on increased coverage of effect size and power.
