Easy to read with logical examples; a nice additional resource to a research methods course. 8/18/2014 9:31 PM

It is a good and practical resource to have to be able to access information time and again. Thank you. 8/11/2014 2:44 AM

Although I have not read this textbook cover to cover, I am referring to it as I proceed through my data analysis. It is a helpful resource to say the least! 8/9/2014 5:07 PM

Hi Bill I’m enjoying the book tremendously. 8/7/2014 7:29 AM

This is a great idea for a text and I like the organization. 8/5/2014 6:36 PM

I did not use this book yet. My research was a qualitative study. 8/5/2014 12:33 PM

I did not finish reading the book yet. In my brief review of the entire textbook I found it to be clear, well-written and engaging. I really enjoyed the analogies in the introduction. I think students would find it helpful. 7/29/2014 10:41 PM

This was a great guide do develop and execute a study. I used it in my PhD program and will likely use it for our MS and DNP program. 7/29/2014 9:01 PM

Provide slides sets and videos about the materials. 7/29/2014 8:41 PM

I am a doctoral student who often struggles with statistics. To that end I am always on the hunt for the perfect stats book. I am very pleased with the book and hope it helps me with my comp exams. 7/29/2014 3:14 PM

I am an educator but do not currently teach research or statistics. I would recommend the book if I did. 7/29/2014 9:17 AM

This book is a wonderful guide for students conducting data analyses. 7/28/2014 10:40 PM

As advertised, this is a great text for bringing together concepts taught in many courses. I am an ABD doctoral student with coursework strung out over the years. The book was perfect for me and I can see making it available for students who may not yet have a solid grasp. 7/28/2014 9:55 PM

Excellent resource for Doctorate Nursing Practice Students. I intend to use in my scholarly project course, but would like to see this adopted in our doctorate data analysis course. 7/28/2014 9:17 PM

Concrete examples and analogies are excellent and bring the text to life. Simple language used to explain complex concepts enhances the usefulness of the text. 7/28/2014 9:01 PM

Since I’m unsure if I will be using the book in the classroom, I could not answer any of those questions. However, I will say that I find the book to be an EXCELLENT tool for use in statistical analysis and I used it in my dissertation – it was VERY helpful! Awesome book! 7/28/2014 8:13 PM

This is a down to earth understanding for students. 7/28/2014 2:00 PM

Easy to read and understand. 7/28/2014 1:23 PM

Book is very thorough and is very organized. I would choose this book over other data analysis books. One of the best ones I have seen. 6/9/2014 10:48 PM

Please make it access free! 3/20/2014 1:57 AM

Thank you for taking the time to write this excellent reference – Extremely helpful/useful. 2/21/2014 11:58 AM

Some of the analogies (cake recipe, etc.) are more confusing than illuminating. The sole focus on SPSS limits the audience. I suggest you include EXCEL as well. This book seems geared to a doctoral student. I would not use it for undergraduate or graduate students. All that said…it’s very thorough and I thank you for the work you put into it. 2/17/2014 9:58 AM

I really like it. The content focuses on practical aspect of stats and not too much on the manual calculation details. 2/17/2014 9:42 AM

Excellent … Hope to get it adapted by a research class. 2/16/2014 5:57 PM

I immediately lent it to a colleague who is putting together a new course for our PhD program. I haven’t been able to get it back yet but am looking forward to seeing it!! 2/16/2014 5:57 PM

I think the book is excellent and user-friendly. I also appreciate the webinars that you provide to supplement what is in the book. 2/16/2014 5:34 PM

This book is the best thing ever!!! 2/16/2014 4:15 PM
