5.0 out of 5 stars best book on the subject, 27 May 2011
This review is from: Statistics for Business and Economics and MathXL Student Access Card Package (Paperback)
This is a fantastic book, it takes you through all the statistical concepts you will need and it explains everything really really well. A literal bible on stats and business, I have found it to be invaluable and although its a long read (800 pages) it covers all the bases.

In my opinion no other book explains statistics as well as this one.

Buy it, read it slowly, and take time to do the examples.

very rewarding - top notch!!

Clear, concise and very good book, with examples drawn from real life scenarios. Also includes statistical tables. Recommend for any serious math student. Comes with CD containing spreadsheet to demonstrate statistical problems (and solutions) using Microsoft excel.

This review is from: Statistics for Business and Economics and MathXL Student Access Card Package (Paperback)
Newbold's 'Statistics for Business and Economics' is a mainstay in the LSE academic collection and for a good purpose. It provides a highly-detailed, comprehensive introduction to Statistics from the basics of data representation up to fundamentals of decision theory. Although at times it is a little technical and dry, there are plenty of illustrations, explanations and examples that should made the statistical concepts come across clearly. There is also opportunity to practice the exercises along with a statistical package (such as Excel, SPSS, Minitab etc) and a folder of data for doing so.

The only real criticism I have is that you will need to access the solutions manual separately to this book as it only contains answers for half of the exercises

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, easy to understand, with solutions and CD, 29 Oct 2011
This review is from: Statistics for Business and Economics and MathXL Student Access Card Package (Paperback)
I bought this book because it was on my essential reading list from my distance learning stats course. I was surprised to get not only the book, but a CD as well. I like the concept which therefore not only teaches us how to do these exercises by hand, but also how these tables could look like on a computer.

The only point that I find slightly negative is that the corrections to the exercises are only of, as quoted in the book of "a selected half of even-numbered questions", but that can be circumvented by working with others and comparing solutions. All in all a great book that I would recommend even for the people who, like me, aren't that good at maths.
