Bruce Frey’s There’s a Stat for That! is a brief, straightforward, and to-the-point guide to deciding which statistical analysis to use and when to use it. Designed for consultants, researchers, students, and those who already have the resources to tell them how to perform the analyses, this text explains why a particular statistical approach is the right one to use. The book affirms that regardless of the group design, once the variables are chosen and the measurement strategy is worked out, one can rest assured that there is a stat for that!
[…T]his is a book that students will keep for their entire career. It will be handy year after year as they are designing and conducting research. It will help them to design studies that answer their exact research hypothesis, rather than designing studies around the techniques they know how to use.
Clear writing style, nice tables and charts, and good references to journal articles for each statistic make this valuable for reviewing statistics and for helping decide which statistic to use in a research situation.
The consistency of the visual presentation of the topics is very clear and helpful. Things to consider is more simple and easy to understand and use than any other supplemental books I have used.
Short, concise treatment of topics is a notable strength of this book. Each test is boiled down to its basics, giving a precise and ‘in the nutshell’ reference that students are likely to find straightforward and helpful.
Excellent supplement for my students conducting their capstone study!
