Strong Points: Statistics guides are useful and provide a lot of information
Weak Points: Need to download software in order to use
The incredible strides made in scientific tool development in the last decade have allowed scientists to gather larger amounts of data than ever before, but without proper visualization this data is almost impossible to interpret appropriately. GraphPad Software provides several tools to make the process of data visualization intuitive and easy. Users can download products from their website, including GraphPad Prism, which is an excellent tool for storing, analyzing, and graphing data. Additionally, the website provides users with a data-analysis resource center, with guides to statistics and curve fitting. The guides are comprehensive in their coverage of basic statistics, while also providing resources for using statistical analysis within the GraphPad software. GraphPad provides great products for data consolidation and analysis, and their website provides additional information that helps make data analysis and visualization easier than ever.
