Format: Paperback
The biggest problem with statistics - at lease from my point of view - is the notations and the format. This books assume that we're all stat-idiots and explains everything from scratch, which is just what you need if you've never done GCSE or A-Level statistics. Upton and Cook might sound a bit patronizing at times, but if you're reading A-level textbooks to keep up in university, like I am, then it's time to put down your pride. I'd say that this book is a perfect compliment for university level statistic textbooks like Newbold's. It actually speaks in human language.

The only problem: it's boring.

But come on people, what do you expect? It's a TEXTBOOK and statistics, as useful as it is, IS BORING.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By T. Melville on 9 April 2010
Format: Paperback
Needing to go back to basics after a ahem long break (think 20 years) some of the other reviews I read about this book told me how easy it was to follow from a Non Mathematician point of view, and they were right.

The Authors teach Maths teachers how to teach the subject, and it's written in a style in which anyone who has never looked at Stats before can follow and use this book.

I like the way, that they explain in plain English, give an Example that is relevant and then give you lots of questions, some even from past exam papers.

Overall, I found this book an excellent source of information, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to someone else. Hence the 5 stars

Purchased for my son studying A level maths - based on reviews posted. Delivered quickly and in perfect condition. Initial feedback from my son is that the reviews are correct - complements his text books and has helped his understanding of the subject. A good investment. Have also subsequently purchased the Understanding Pure Mathematics book.
