4.0 out of 5 stars Clear and easy to read, but has some errors 27 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Kindle edition has some errors in the text and equations. I've spotted 2 or 3, there may be others.

They're kind of obvious if you know the subject, but could cause people who're learning stats from this book (rather than refreshing) to make serious errors.

Four stars might seem a bit high for a book with significant errors, but it's clear, well organised, and doesn't throw you into the deep end too quickly. That's rare in a mathematics book.

I just hope the e-book edition gets fixed.

Neat, clear and concise. With excellent examples. And all exercises have not only the result, but solutions shown in steps and notes about why a certain formula was applied (what's the point of an exercise with solution: "25"? and if your result is 23? You are stuck.)
I've checked about 15 books for my students, and this is really a gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and easy read 20 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So much info, so well written. I've read the first three chapters so far and the review exercises really help point out bits I thought I'd absorbed, but hadn't quite fully, so I can go back and re-read. I like few maths books, but this one's awesome.
