I find this book hard to understand. I took basic statistics approximately 10 years ago, and thus my knowledge on the subject is highly limited. This book assumes you know quite a bit about statistics already. The explnations and examples use assumptions that I am not able to follow. There are no headlines within the chapters for important information/formulas, so these are difficult to decipher. Also, my professor is continually saying how the book is just wrong on certain topics. It does not use SPSS, it uses minitab. I would not recommend this book to a beginning stats user. There are better texts out there for this class. I gave it an extra star for having good examples that use real life situations.

I have been using this book for three months now because I am required to. The worst book ever in terms of how things are written down. It has so many typographical errors. And the explanation and examples are minimal for the different statistical tests. The internet and wikipedia explain things better than this book. I didn't buy this book on Amazon, I got it from the university websites. It's a waste of $140-$150 bucks or whatever you paid for it. I cannot use this book without having to google things.

I will probably write more details about the errors and inadequate explanations and provide examples, once I finish my final exam.

Excellent, thorough, comprehensive guide to the basics of statistics. Especially useful in clinical epidemiology. Only problem is that the answers to the questions are provided only for odd numbers. Fail. Excel spreadsheets available and very useful. I use STATA so that was missing in the book. In any event, in spite of these shortcomings, Daniel has changed my way of approaching and understanding statistics applied in medicine and healthcare.

maybe its the level I am that doesn't require such comprehensive knowledge; but even if that was the case I think its still a hard read. Its not really simplistic enough or visually appealing.

Helped me understand how to apply various statistical tests in a methodical manner. Only thing I didn't like was that it was loose-leaf, which I was not expecting

This book has helped a lot for me to pass my class, but the material can sometimes be so confusing I end up using Rosner's book.
