4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent, student-friendly text for MBA candidates., 22 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Mason and Lind have a rare capability to explain complex concepts and procedures using concise, jargon-free terminology. They consistently illustrate their points with both excellent examples and visuals. This is most definitely the book for those who are petrified of statistics. The authors' common sense use of business situations to solidify student understanding of the various topics is noteworthy. They do not forget that this is a text in APPLIED statistics for the business student. Their explanation of theory is sufficient but not overwhelming. My only suggestions for improvement would be (1) incorporate the Internet and its data bases into exercises and (2) use EXCEL explicitly as much as possible. Businesses generally have EXCEL, they don't generally have MINITAB. My students have consistently commented on the clarity and readability of the text. I strongly recommendation its adoption for MBA programs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful for stats courses, 6 Nov 2003
By A Customer
This book is great for all stats courses related to stats and economics. It assumes no knowledge of statistics and covers basiscs, as well as introducing some econometrics. Invaluable for the first year of all economics courses, and definitely the best book of its genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, little bit cheeky, 28 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Would give this five stars but they only provide answers for half of the questions in the chapters which seems like poor form.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good reference text, 23 May 2011
Excellent book that has served me well as a reference text on statistical techniques. It explains everything well so that you can understand both the technique and when to use it.

4.0 out of 5 stars statistics lind, 14 Nov 2010
Good for a used book. The CD is very useful and contains each chapter as a power-point presentation, in addition to the solutions to exercises and answers to self-review questions.
