The only statistics text currently available specifically for exercise science students, Statistics in Kinesiology, Fourth Edition, provides an accessible introduction to statistics concepts and techniques and their applications to exercise science-related areas.
Students will learn to use statistical tools to analyze quantitative data and then apply that knowledge to many of the common questions and problems they will encounter as they continue their studies.
