This is a great book for people who are new to research. It is just an overview, so don't expect to be able to apply complicated statistical formulas after reading, but it's a good way to begin.

My one complaint is that there are a lot of typos, which will hopefully be cleared up in the next edition.
This text was used in my undergraduate introduction to statistics class. Most of the book is extremely simplistic and would make a good basic survey for someone who has never been exposed to stats. If you have some knowledge, definitely skip this one.

It was well organized and for the beginner, non-major, & those not intending to pursue research further than required; however, I found the sections on statistics to be lacking.
Good introduction to research. Have had it twice for classes now.
An easy introduction to research and statistics.
Only read the assigned chapters.
