introductory stats 5 July 2006
By W Boudville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The book is essentially a standard introductory probability and statistics course, with an emphasis on the statistics. The business and economics in the title is mostly reflected in the examples given in the text, which have that orientation.

There is also no emphasis on formal proving of various maths results. The typical reader is not expected to be a maths major, and probably does not need it.

A useful feature is the CD that accompanies the book. It lets the reader easily use a computer to handle the tedious data inputting and number crunching.

Good Book but... 18 Oct. 2006
By B Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Yes, put all the extra features together, namely the student CD and the Visual Statistics together, this seems like a well-put-together solution for a beginner statistics course. However, it needs some help. The book could be more thoroughly indexed. Visual Statistics software does not work properly even with updates. Sentence such as "The mean of the sampling distribution of the sample mean is obtained by summing the various sample means and dividing the sum by the number of samples" is not intuitive. This book has potential to be great, but it will take better teaching techniques than complex statistics talk.

Review of Basic Statistics 19 Feb. 2007
By Steven T. Meadows - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a well written and illustrated text book that describes the working of statistics. Definitions are placed in boxs within the text so the defination of a term is where you read the uses of the term. Review questions are also place within the text so the question follows the definition and explation of the statitistical information being taught. The book also uses web sites for information and examples, software programs such as Excel, to add to the learning experience. Included is a CD with power point lessons, and sample quizes.
Horrible 17 Sept. 2009
By M. E. Woolfenden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This has been my worst experience with a company with Amazon.com. This company claimed to be selling me a new book, however, I received a rather old book. The CD that should have been included was not there. When I sent a message to the seller, no one ever got back to me in regard to this matter. I would never do business with this company again. I highly recommend that people find other businesses to do their business with.
there are excellent, cheaper alternatives 20 Oct. 2007
By eagle60s - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Take a look at [...] Understanding Business Statistics, the book featured there, is independently published and sells for only $39.95 (new). It is clear, extremely readable and very student-friendly.
