I am using this book for my first statistics class. It is one of the most confusing and poorly structured books I have used in any college class. Explanations are not thorough enough as the authors just love to jump into example after example. I had my brother who majored in Statistics look at the book and confirmed how bad it is. If you have to use this book go to the khan academy website to properly teach the material. It will save you a lot of time and frustration.
The text really mirrors prior editions. However, when you are taking a class, you have to purchase the edition that the instructor is currently using. The only difference that I could note in this version and an earlier version is the homework problems. Statistics is statistics and not much will change in one elementary version to the next. I did find the text overall very helpful with the guided exercises.
I rented this book for my Statistics class at my community college, and it was super helpful!
However, my professor typically tweaked the formulas in the book, because the formulas in the book are usually the longer and more complicated methods.
Never the less, I used it very often in the class and it helped!
Like it ok, not the best for what I needed. However, if you already have stat background would be excellent . I needed something more basic.
I bought this book because it was a requirement for my economics statistics class. I am also taking another math statistics class that uses the book Statistics by Freedmen. That book is 1000% better than this. When it comes to receiving the book, it was good, took a long time but good. When it comes to the quality of the book for learning, it sucks. I don't know why it was written the way it is because the concepts are not hard to understand but the way it is written makes it seem a lot more difficult than necessary.
I was skeptical off this subject at first but I actually enjoy it and the book helps a lot. It's really easy to understand and makes the content manageable
Exactly what my son needed and delivered on time.
Statistics how do you write a positive review????. I passed with a B+ spit worked.
