A short, practical book for undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in the biosciences who need a guide to which statistical analysis will best suit their data. The book briefly explains the theory behind each of the statistical analyses and demonstrates how to choose which to use. Accompanying the book is the PractiStat CD-ROM which allows data to be entered and instant statistical results to be provided. This innovative program should be invaluable for any student who is using statistics in a practical way.
