This book gives an overview of various statistical methods and tests. Its tone is extremely condescending, and is often needlessly redundant. It is also really sad that the authors basically admit at the end of the book that have left you unprepared to read and understand a real statistics book.

Best class yet. Got an A and loved every minute. The book was really straight forward with lots of problems worked out that helped me get a quick grasp of the topics and easily complete my homework.
