Pages 21

This chapter is intended for people who have recently completed a course in introductory statistical techniques. These courses usually cover a very wide variety of topics: measures of central tendency and dispersion; parametric and non-parametric tests; tests for differences; and tests for association to name but a few. This chapter gives a guided tour of the basic topics that are the most essential in order to understand Analysis of Variance and related statistical techniques.
