posted on 2023-06-07, 18:19 authored by Andy FieldAndy Field, Jeremy Miles
"Hot on the heels of the 3rd edition of Andy Field's award-winning Discovering Statistics Using SPSS comes this brand new version for students using SAS. Andy has teamed up with a co-author, Jeremy Miles, to adapt the book with all the most up-to-date commands and programming language from SAS 9.2. If you're using SAS, this is the only book on statistics that you will need!" "The book provides a comprehensive collection of statistical methods, tests and procedures, covering everything you're likely to need to know for your course, all presented in Andy's accessible and humourous writing style. Suitable for those new to statistics as well as students on intermediate and more advanced courses, the book walks students through from basic to advanced level concepts, all the while reinforcing knowledge through the use of SAS." "A 'cast of characters' supports the learning process throughout the book, from providing tips on how to enter data in SAS properly to testing knowledge covered in chapters interactively, and 'real world' and invented examples illustrate the concepts and make the techniques come alive." "The book's companion website ( provides students with a wide range of invented and real published research datasets, multiple choice questions and a flashcard glossary to test their learning, links to other study skills resources and lots more. Lecturers can find additional multiple choice questions and PowerPoint slides for each chapter to support their teaching."
