This is a straightforward and practical introduction to statistics for students without any advanced knowledge of mathematics who need to use statistical techniques. The author provides a wide selection of effective tools of the trade so that the reader can tackle a whole variety of concrete situations. No attempt is made to give a comprehensive account of the subject. Enough technique is explained so that the reader can appreciate when there is a need to turn to more advanced material elsewhere. The basic mathematics required is at the level of senior secondary school education, although even less is necessary for the earlier chapters of the book.

'...it must be recognised that Professor Moore has produced a book which will usefully serve a wide audience of beginners in statistics.' Journal of the Royal Statistical Society 'In general, Professor Moore's book is a good survey of the basics of statistical techniques, and as such is to be recommended to students at both school, college and university who wish to have a working knowledge of the practical application of Statistics. The style of writing is such that the reading is easy, and the exercises provided will aid the teacher as well as the student. The book should prove useful to all who read it.' The Statistician 'This is a very readable and sound introduction to statistics.' The Mathematical Gazette
