What Reviewers Say About Applied Statistics

Even though I completed multiple graduate level statistics courses, I benefitted from the simple and straight forward content of this text. Practice tests at the end of chapters helps assess learning and application. This is a great refresher resource for counselors and beginning graduate students.
