Hurlburt's text offers an innovative approach to teaching and understanding statistics. Many students consider statistics their most intimidating subject, but Hurlburt uses a variety of learner-friendly approaches to help students to think clearly and confidently about statistical concepts. Students find his writing style inviting and clear; faculty find it exceptionally accurate and up to date. He provides a complete set of interactive audio/visual lectures (called "lectlets") to engage students who find that hearing enhances their comprehension. Hurlburt deftly employs repetition and a progressive, cumulative integration of concepts, so students build upon what they learn as they progress through the course. Hurlburt's unique "eyeball-estimation techniques," which garnered high praise in previous editions, helps students gain experience in making educated guesses! New to this edition, COMPREHENDING BEHAVIORAL STATISTICS, THIRD EDTION, includes a FREE Personal Trainer CD--This hands-on CD contains 43 interactive audio/visual lectures (called "lectlets") covering all the concepts in the text. Students use the lectlets to prepare for class, to clarify concepts they didn't understand in class, to substitute for a missed class, and to review for exams. The FREE Personal Trainer also includes ESTAT, Hurlburt's unique eyeball-estimation software, which enables students to make an educated guess about the magnitude of a statistic without the use of a calculator or statistical tables. ESTAT includes datagen, the easiest-to-use statistical computational software. The Personal Trainer CD also includes interactive electronic review and multiple choice quizzes. The Personal Trainer CD is a dynamic and useful "after-class tutor" for any student struggling with statistics.

NEW AND REVISED THIRD EDITION This book introduces basic statistics and statistical concepts, with each chapter building in sophistication to prepare for the concepts that follow. Emphasizing comprehension and interpretation over computation, the book still takes a serious approach to statistics, tailored to the real world of crime and justice. The updated and expanded 3rd edition includes additional chapter-end exercises; expanded computer exercises that can be performed in the Student Version of SPSS; extended discussion of multivariate regression models, including interaction and non-linear effects; a new chapter on multinomial and ordinal logistic regression models, designed for comprehension and interpretation; and new material on multivariate regression models. "One course that students always put off until they are nearing the completion of their degree requirements is statistics. The fear is that the material is either too difficult or the book doesn’t make sense. Although as teachers we can do little about the former, we can do much about the latter, and Weisburd and Britt have done just that. Statistics in Criminal Justice is precisely the book I wish I learned statistics with when I was a student. It presents readers with the basic tools needed to be a consumer and user of criminal justice research, includes many examples spanning a wide range of criminal justice/criminological topics, and the end-of-chapter study questions and computer exercises reinforce key concepts. To the authors’ credit, this text goes even farther by introducing the reader to more advanced forms of regression-based analyses. As such, the book can and should be read by undergraduate students starting off in higher education, graduate students embarking on their academic careers, and even seasoned faculty who every now and again need to recall a formula or brush up on some matters. After reading Statistics in Criminal Justice, I am sure you will join me in thanking these two first-rate scholars for taking the time to teach us statistics in an enjoyable and effective manner." -Alex R. Piquero, Presidential Scholar & Professor, University of Maryland-College Park
