A companion volume to core texts targeting introductory social statistics courses, The Statistics Coach: Learning Through Practice helps students bridge the 'knowing-doing gap'. That is, while core texts help students understand statistics, the coaching program in this supplementary volume helps students do statistics. The Statistics Coach accomplishes this goal using a three-part structure - a 'tune-up', a lab application, and constructive feedback (tips on common errors and answers to the applications appear on the companion website) - that optimizes students' ability to apply and practise the theories, concepts, and techniques involved in using statistics as part of sociological research. In addition, a reference section at the end of the volume provides step-by-step guidelines for using SPSS, an essential application for working with data. As a result, The Statistics Coach offers much more than conventional study guides, which instead tend to focus on learning comprehension via chapter summaries, review of major concepts, and sample test questions.
