Be aware that there are at least two versions of this book labeled as an eighth edition.

The version described on this page ISBN-10: 0073386103 / ISBN-13: 978-0077460396, the version I ordered (used).

Then there is the version I received ISBN-10: 0073386103 / ISBN-13: 978-0073386102, it is unclear if it is supposed to have a CD and Formula Card. The version I received had it, but another reviewer of that version did not receive it.

Beware that if you receive the latter version the Amazon sell back price is about half that of the former. Be sure to check the ISBN to make sure you receive the book you ordered. I wish I had!

As for the book itself, it seemed fine for the class taken. The CD was not really very useful, but you must buy what is required for the class.

Book itself is thorough though the CD did not work whatsoever on my computer.(It may work on yours?) Formula card was handy, but I could have easily done without it. My advice would be to double check ISBN on your receipt to the book itself immediately when you receive it, otherwise you will not be able to trade it in. There are identical books with different ISBN's out there.

This book is very helpful however the way the material is taught depends upon your professor. Some of the equations in this particular edition differ from the other Statistic books. This book had many helpful problems and it prepared me for each test. Another interesting fact about this book was it was cheaper than the non-international Elementary Statistic book. The international and non-international are exactly alike the only difference is the price.

Amazing! I ordered the book overnight and it was right on time! No delays and no issues. The book was in excellent condition as described when I ordered it, even better than what they describe and it did have included the formula card and the Data CD. The best part of it was the punctuality. The tracking and the eta were right on point! I wish they sold my other nutrition book. Excellent supplier!
