Statistics and Scientific Method
An Introduction for Students and Researchers
Peter J. Diggle and Amanda G. Chetwynd
Reviews and Awards
"This book does strike, the proper balance to meet the requirements of a service course in statistics for researchers and students who have little or no statistical background. The necessary statistical concepts are taught from first principles and the mathematics is deliberately kept simple but used when needed. The R software language is used as students working out even simple problems need a computer for the solution. The book provides web addresses for downloadable data sets and R code to make it possible for the reader to duplicate the results presented in the book. The authors have a nice writing style and explain all the important concepts well." -- Michael R. Chernick, Significance: Statistics Making Sense
