"As books on statistical analysis go, it is a real value." --Kaye Weber in Respiratory Care "I found this book describing 100 statistical tests in 216 pages a useful reference book for me as a practicing statistician. This book covers comprehensively the most commonly used and the not so commonly used statistical tests. . . . The author is to be commended for compiling all the relevant statistical tests into one resourceful reference book." --Raji Sridhara, M.D. in Statistical Methods in Medical Research "This book needed to be written, and the reaction of everyone I have shown it to has been 'why hasn't this been done before?'. . . I cannot praise this book too highly--it is a godsend for practitioners who are competent statisticians but who need a sourcebook for precise details of all the various tests. Every OR department should have a copy!" --Journal of Operational Research Society "Overall, this book is a good reference for a user with a knowledge of basic descriptive and inferential statistics and reasonable skills with arithmetic formulas and notation. This reference covers tests not commonly found in other sources." -Nursing Research "One of the features that makes this an attractive book is the built-up displayed equations. They are presented more as they would be written on a marker board as opposed to being set on a single line. The typography is also very pleasing. The tests are complemented by a set of 39 tables of critical values. . . . Every person who does statistical testing should have a copy of this reasonably priced book on a handy reference shelf." --Journal of Quality Technology As the number of tests has increased, so has the pressing need for a single source of reference. Bringing together the 100 most commonly used tests, this volume provides just such an indispensable aid for student and statistician alike. This is the essential resource on statistical tests. An introduction discusses the principles of hypothesis testing. Examples of the procedure for selected tests follow, illustrating statistical method in practice. The purpose of each test is summarized and a classification chart identifies their interconnections and contexts of use. 100 Statistical Tests consists of clear, concise outlines of the objective, method, strengths, and limitations of each test, giving sample data. All the relevant tables of critical values are also included. This volume is an invaluable addition to the bookshelf of anyone working with applied statistics and quantitative methodologies throughout the social sciences, business, and management.
