The book provides complete coverage of the classical methods of statistical analysis. It is designed to give students an understanding of the purpose of statistical analyses, to allow the student to determine, at least to some degree, the correct type of statistical analyses to be performed in a given situation, and have some appreciation of what constitutes good experimental design.
Because of the universal appeal of statistics and statistical methodology, most graduate programs include as part of their curriculum one or two course in statistical methods. In addition, undergraduate students majoring in mathematics or statistics are required or encouraged to take courses in statistical methods. This book is intended to serve as a text for such courses. The book requires no mathematics beyond algebra, however, mathematically oriented students will still find the material in the text challenging.
