If you have a specific book to suggest I would appreciate it. I have Pinhiero and Bates (2000), Mixed Effects Models in S and S-Plus, but have not found specific mentioned of how the t value is derived there yet.

I admit my ignorance in this area, and apologize if my questions are dumb, but nevertheless would appreciate some civility.
