# What is Statistics

The criteria I applied in the selection of the best Statistics textbook for college students and researchers are drawn from the sciences that conduct research and not from theoretical Mathematics. A textbook is rated for its teaching the logic, concepts and practical aspects of Statistics. In many fields, e .g. Medical, Behavioral, or Social Sciences, the main problem students and researchers face is not analyzing their data (there are many statistical packages that do this), but the question "Which statistical test I use". To be able to do this a researcher must have a good command of the concepts and logic of statistics. Formulas will not enlighten a researcher in the choice of a statistical test or a research strategy (experimental design).
