I found this text invaluable whilst studying the "quantitative management" module of a post-graduate business course. It provided a useful revision of various A-level mathematics statistics theories and was a good introductory text for students on the course who had no prior statistical knowledge. The clear, logical and easy-to-read layout included an abundance of fully-explained (and realistic) examples which helped consolidate one's learning of the theories. I particularly appreciated the "plain-speaking" approach in this book which is so often lacking in academic texts. It really did make learning easier!
Possibly it could benefit from a "further reading" or "references" section at the end of each chapter to point out other relevant texts that may be of use to students seeking further application or detail on a topic.
All-in-all I can highly recommend this text as a learning resource.
