Understanding Statistics in Psychology with SPSS, 7th Edition

Our hope is that this seventh edition of what has been retitled Understanding Statistics in Psychology with SPSS will contribute even more to the student learning experience.

Statistics, 11th Edition

Students often approach statistics with great apprehension. For many, it is a required course to be taken only under the most favorable circumstances, such as during a quar­ter or semester when carrying a light course load; for others, it is as distasteful as a visit to a credit counselor—to be postponed as long as possible, with the vague hope that mounting debts might miraculously disappear. Much of this apprehension doubtless rests on the widespread fear…

Statistical Methods for Practice and Research, 2nd Edition

A guide to data analysis using SPSS For business managers and practicing researchers, many times it becomes difficult to solve the real life problems involving statistical methods using software packages.

Programación orientada a objetos C++ y Java

Un acercamiento interdisciplinario ¿Por qué otro libro sobre programación estructurada y programación orientada a objetos, si existen varios de excelente calidad? Todos los trabajos que hasta hoy hemos encontrado se dirigen hacia las instrucciones de código y los algoritmos: se explican las sentencias y las soluciones, para luego dar uno o varios ejemplos de uso (el inicio típico es un programa que despliega la frase “Hola, mundo”). En términos generales, este método puede formar buenos…

Principles of Statistical Inference

Most statistical work is concerned directly with the provision and implementa­tion of methods for study design and for the analysis and interpretation of data. The theory of statistics deals in principle with the general concepts underlying all aspects of such work and from this perspective the formal theory of statistical inference is but a part of that full theory. Indeed, from the viewpoint of indi­vidual applications, it may seem rather a small part. Concern is…

Pedagogía de la Interioridad

Aprender a «ser» desde uno mismo ¿Qué sabemos de nosotros mismos, de nuestro propio mundo interior? ¿Dónde, cómo y cuándo aprendemos a descubrirlo y a profundizar en él?

Pero sabemos también que es previo, y fundamental, entendemos a nosotros mismos, saber quiénes somos, cuá­les son…
