#### Solution Manual for Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences 2nd Edition by Gregory J. Privitera

Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences, Second Edition, engages students in an ongoing spirit of discovery by illustrating how statistics apply to modern-day research problems. By integrating robust pedagogy as well as screenshots and practical examples for using IBM SPSS® Statistics software, award-winning author Gregory J. Privitera balances statistical theory, computation, and application with the technical instruction needed for students to succeed in the modern era of data collection, analysis, and statistical interpretation. Fully updated with current research and a full-color design, this new edition features even more real-world examples and an updated Student Study Guide with SPSS Workbook. “Privitera does an EXCELLENT job of balancing clarity with depth.” —Ronald W. Stoffey, Kutztown University of Pennsylvania “The writing style and the presentation of material are not only ENJOYABLE TO READ but are EASY TO FOLLOW and understand.” —Joshua J. Dobias, Rutgers University “Privitera ties research methods, SPSS, and statistics together in a SEAMLESS fashion.” —Walter M. Yamada, Azusa Pacific University “I like the objectives, the readability of the text, the straightforwardness of the presentations of concepts, the problems that are quite APPROPRIATE ON MANY LEVELS (computation, theory, etc.), and the emphasis on SPSS.” —Ted R. Bitner, DePauw University
