Abstract

Have you ever read a book and said to yourself, “Boy I wish I had that back then?” In the area of data handling and manipulation, this is that book. Davidson has compiled 30 principles by which one can effectively handle data. The audiences for this text are: “(a) graduate students and novice researchers who want to expand their knowledge of the use of computers in the social sciences, including education, and (b) educators who want to improve data gathering in their teaching institutions” (p. x). Davidson offers this book as a companion to statistical texts. If you are looking for the equation for a dependent t-test or want to review the assumptions for ANOVA, this is not the book you are looking for. If you want to know how to efficiently handle information, for instance, research data, this is the text for you.
