I've taken different flavors of applied statistics 3 times for different goals but this textbook has the most concise and easy to understand examples I have seen of any textbook regardless of price. This book doesn't weigh down with jargon or unnecessary technical terms - it gets right to the point and gives copious examples to try the work out on your own. Even better, thorough answer key at the back of the book. I would have purchased it if not for the sticker shock.
Full of typos. Very sloppy editing. Author takes shortcuts to answer problems, assuming reader will figure it out. The book stated that you wouldn't need any other resource to learn statistics, but I found myself going to other books and looking up videos to try to make heads or tails of what was in the book.

This book was required for a class, otherwise I would have sent it back ASAP. Unless you need it for class, look elsewhere for a good statistics book
I had to buy this book for my master's course in statistics. There is nothing wrong with the condition of the book, but the book isn't the most well written text book. Quite a number of typos & not a detailed enough explanation on some of the math problems.
The text was reasonably easy to understand, but the TYPOs! Errors on the stats problems that we had to endure while trying to learn were unbelievably frustrating. Imagine trying desperately to understand a stats problem only to find out that the answer in the text that you didn't understand was WRONG! Happened in every chapter; sometimes multiple times.
Pages were out and more are coming off. The book is basically falling apart. Water stains and crumpling on pages. Not sure if this is going to last me the whole semester. Very disappointed
It's very difficult to follow and there are many other good books that teach the same material in a manner that's less complicated.

Required for course. Used with SPSS. The explanations are clear and to the point and steps are provided on how to complete test analysis for each chapter. However needed course to support most topics.
Bought for class. Found the textbook to be very unhelpful to understanding the concepts. I wish the sample problem sets came with more detailed explanations, sometimes it is difficult to understand how certain conclusions were reached, even after re-reading the chapter again and again. Free online videos on these topics were far more useful than this textbook.
