FNPs: Frequently Needed Pointers

By Steve Draper,   Department of Psychology,   University of Glasgow.

This is like a page of FAQs except:
a) Those aren't usually lists of questions but of questions PLUS answers (FAQ&As?) – and this page is a list of answers without the questions. So: frequently needed starting points.
b) They are answers to what I want to tell some person or persons i.e. not strictly their questions, but something I want them to know or at least know where to start looking.

So, in effect, this is the index to some frequently needed pointers e.g. telling students or other researchers where to get a first idea about some educational theory; or examples of using asterisks in a stats table to show which numbers are statistically significant.
