I have a dream that statisticians won't use playing cards as an example for probability distributions. I do not know how to play cards (go ahead and laugh) and every time a problem relating to cards comes up I always get baffled.
The explanations in this book are okay, sometimes the book will explain concepts the longer way before introducing a shorter and more efficient method in order to ensure sufficient knowledge on the broader topic and theory. In practice this is good for some people, but lazy University students like myself obviously wish to just learn the sufficient knowledge to solve problems in an exam.
The binomial distribution table at the back is also lackluster, the questions given in progress exercises require values for n that are not even in the back of the book.
There is a lack of proof checking in this book, in a subject where answers have to be to a T, it's frustrating. The answer book at the back often gives wrong or misleading answers, some answers do not match the questions and vice versa.
This is a university level book, but I've seen better written guides for A-Level students that have a more direct and explanative approach.
Teresa has many statistics and mathematics books and this one does not disappoint. Those of you who are taking statistical modules as an undergraduate would heavily benefit from this book as it takes you through examples, and helping you to understand key statistical concepts.
