A very good textbook on statistics, though I think too much space is devoted towards theory. Building up to t-stats using z-values makes sense in theory, but I think my students found it more confusing than helpful. That said, it's the first textbook I've read that I actually enjoyed reading.

This was easily one of the worst textbooks I've ever had to muddle through. Explanations were not cohesive, not thorough, and often were in no particular order. I learned more from Khan Academy videos and my instructor (who was actually mostly useless as well.) The textbook was just one more level of frustration to this class. I only learned anything because I found resources for myself.

Excellent introductory Statistics book covering data exploration, collection, description, classification, quantification, graphing, and rudimentary cleansing. Later chapters explore inference, regressions, the most common distributions, sampling, and Z/T hypothesis testing for single statistic means and proportions. All required skills, sans basic mathematics, are enabled by this book.

This book is pretty good. I'm no mathematician and taking statistics independent study had me pretty psyched out! In fact, I saved it for my LAST class required for graduation. It was a full court press to finish the course in the short 3 months that I had. Between this text and the stat tutor online videos via Launchpad, I was successful.

This book was easy to understand and the problems were never dry and always helpful. It is easy to see why this book is used in countless statistic classes around the country.

I'm going to be taking a class in statistics next fall so I thought I'd get a head start.

This book is a piece of garbage. Look if you enjoy wasting your time on low level tedious work then buy this book. I can't stand much of the computation and it's annoying how poorly written the examples are for reference to other problems. I am very annoyed that i needed to buy this book for my class for my degree. I seriously wish I could give less than one star on this book. I've taken calculus 2 and that was a lot less busy work than this book.
