This book is organized into 3 general categories: the research process and how data that has been collected can be organized, presented and summarized (chapters 1 - 4); the process of conducting statistical analyses to test research questions, and hypotheses and issues and controversies regarding the process (chapters 5 - 10) and the last section which examines statistical procedures used in research situations that vary in the number of independent variables in the study, as well as how the independent and dependent variables have been measured (chapters 11 - 14). Every chapter contains learning checks which include review questions, and exercises are included at the end of every chapter to help assess what was learned.

"This textbook is very well written. It is very easy to read and is easy to follow the material presented. There are a lot of good practical examples that students can easily relate to. It seems that there are more exercise problems at the end of each chapter compared to other textbooks, which is a big plus." -- Hideki Morooka, Fayetteville State University
"I like that it [Fundamental Statistics for the Social and Behavioral Sciences] incorporates SPSS examples in each relevant chapter and gives a detailed description of how each formula is done, what the steps to each analysis is, and applying it to a real life problem...The book lays out the formulas step by step. Most students in my experience have a problem with formulas when you move beyond the simple calculation of the mean. I think that the formulas are well laid out with a step-by-step guide on how to calculate each with the appropriate explanation of each step and the final product of the equation." -- Shelly A. McGrath, University of Alabama at Birmingham
