1.0 out of 5 stars Full of errors! 19 Feb 2013
By Barbara
Verified Purchase
I bought this a while ago and am now preparing for my Statistics A-levels. While I guess you could argue it's useful to have some practice exercises, explanations of everything you need to know aren't fantastic in this book (I also have the AS and A2-level Core maths books from Pearson, which are far better at explaining things). What's much worse, however, is that the exercises and answers, as well as a number of the examples given, are full of typos. I could live with grammatical typos in a maths book, but in this case it's always the numbers that are misprinted - so in quite a few cases, while checking my answers, I was baffled as to why I got them wrong, only to have a closer look and realise that there was, for example, a '0' too many in the figures on which I was asked to base my calculations!

If that happened once that would be acceptable, but I've come across at least a dozen, and I'm only halfway through the book.

It's unfortunate that there don't appear to be many books available for the AQA statistics modules...

4.0 out of 5 stars Should be better. 25 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
Although, like others in the series, most of the topics are well set out, this one fails to impress on account of its coverage of probability; explanations should be better. There is no attempt to prove the fundamental laws of probability, even though Venn Diagrams are included and worse still, there just aren't enough worked examples to drive home to the average student, what to do and why.

Understanding probability is crucial to any statistics module, therefore this book can not be recommended for someone who finds this topic difficult. On the plus side, it does offer good coverage of the Normal Distribution, but even here, extra information could've been included for completeness. The section covering use of the Binomial Distribution makes no attempt to explain how the formula is derived, even though most students capable of a high grade would find it straightforward.

Those relying solely on this as their course book, would probably fail to achieve an A-grade as a result. Under these circumstances, best avoided: get 'A Concise Course in A-Level Statistics' instead. You'll end up with a much better understanding of the topics and it will also cover virtually everything needed for S2 and beyond. The earlier versions are best value-for-money, but don't cover Box and Whisker or Stem-Leaf Plots. Fortunately this is something which most students have studied at GCSE-level, so it shouldn't be a problem.

On the plus side, it does contain useful diagrams and tips. Also, each chapter ends with an exercise of exam questions by the AQA-board, with details of the year set. For the tutor or teacher, the ability to print out exercises from the cd supplied is very useful.
