Bought this for first year economics.I regret paying £40 pounds for it since a lot of the answers are wrong and a lot of the answers aren't even in the book!Not worth it at all!

OMG - Very, very good in places (and if you already have A/AS level S1 Maths) but not the clearest text book for Degree Business Stats found. However, this was the required text book for the course.
