This is one of the better, easier to understand stats books I've come across. Its written clearly with the information organized well both when it comes to chapters and to individual pages (they don't send you scurrying back and forth to figures and charts on different pages, if the information is relevant to the topic, its repeated on that page). Whoever wrote this book did so with the intent to TEACH not preach.
The book is well written and presents the information in an easy to digest manner. It does contain an answer key in the back for the odd-numbered questions but it doesn't show the work. You need the student solutions manual for that. Having taken several math-related courses I've found that how hard the class is often depends on how well the book is written and this is one of the better ones.
This book is the best, most thorough "introductory" statistics book ever. Although the title says "introductory", it delves quite deep into descriptive and inferential statistics, but does it so methodically that even the most "non-math" mind eventually gets it. The exercises, which you are supposed to practice with, help the topics sink in more deeply.
Maybe its just stats i found really hard to understand or this book was confusing? or both? didnt care for stats and this book didn't really help me. i found myself searching for related web videos instead.
Decent book. Had to buy it, but it wasn't too terrible. There are better books to learn from though, but you don't get to choose which book you learn from when you're in college.
It's a textbook for a statistics course, and insofar at it goes it's not a bad book. I'd call it uneven. It can be a little hard to follow along when the authors decide to get "math-y" and then can be almost oversimplistic in the next paragraph. I'm not sure it's being used to its full potential in the class either. It will do. (I was spoiled by a previous course where the instructor was very good and wrote her own textbook.)
Digital version available to conserve space, or carrying around another heavy book. Nice intro material on a topic I liked learning about.
10th ed was required for class but purchased the 9th edition at a fraction of the cost, the only difference was the extra exercises. Book received in perfect condition.
