A book such as this serves no purpose in this day and age when one can easily get terse summaries of different statistical and econometric techniques from Wikipedia. This book has an awful lot of words but very few examples of how to apply many of techniques in practice, so often it doesn't really help when you have a confusion that you're trying to clear up. If William Greene's Econometric Analysis is too mathematical, at least it has good examples of how to apply that math and sometimes the ma...more
One of the best, and easy to use summary in statistics to check assumptions and ensure correct analysis. Statistics are more abused than used, which renders this book a superior reference against common-day abuses.
Gotta say, for a subject that I really struggle with, this was a great read. The author does a good job explaining things conceptually. This will be something I buy and keep for a reference!

Recommends it for: Year 1 grad students
Shelves: academic

Recommends it for: anyone who is taking a statistics course or how uses statistics
Shelves: economica
This is simply the best, most useful resource available for anyone who does any applied statistics of any kind. Highly reccomended.

I'd be much worse off without this book.
One of the best Introductory Texts.
