Applied Statistics: Analysis of Variance and Regression, Third Edition has been thoroughly revised to provide a comprehensive and uptodate combination of sound statistical methodology, practical advice on the application of this methodology, and interpretation of output from statistical programs. Special features include comprehensive treatment of each topic, from summarization of data to presentation of results; a greater emphasis on regression, data screening, and confidence intervals; indepth discussion of designrelated topics such as mixed models and random effects; and overviews of more advanced topics. This valuable, selfcontained textbook is eminently suitable for upperundergraduate/graduate students and applied researchers with an interest in ANOVA techniques.
