"Howitt and Cramer’s “Introduction to Statistics in Psychology” maintains its lead as the best textbook in what is the most difficult area of study for most psychology students. Indeed, it is more than an ‘introduction’ – its’ clear and comprehensive coverage of statistical analysis from basic descriptive and bivariate techniques to multivariate methods will be a priceless resource for students throughout all years of study."
