From the Publisher
Greater focus on core topics of business statistics. In an effort to streamline the new edition without sacrificing the level of rigor or style of presentation, the new edition will carefully eliminate those topics that reviewers have noted are either unused or too advanced for an introductory business statistics course.
Spreadsheet application. The new edition incorporates the use of Excel spreadsheets throughout, in addition to continuing to use Minitab where it applies. Excel examples are a current hot topic in this market. It is widely used throughout both a student's academic and occupational careers. The integration in this text exposes students to even more Excel throughout their academic career!
Internet exercises. Internet exercises are included throughout to give students the opportunity to develop better data collection skills and to provide students with exposure to the expansive web resources available to them.
