This text is highly recommended for students studying statistics in applied sciences as it makes use of the formulae that are used in the syllabus and is written very well.

This book will be useful for me to use as a resource with the few students who really want to know about how the statistics work. It is too mathematical for most of my applied social science students who will not have studied mathematics beyond GCSE grade B tier.
