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.

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.

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.

Really good book for those students who are taking this class online and teaching yourselves the material. Examples of problems are shown step-by-step, and new information is scaffolded onto the stuff learned from previous chapters. I wish the new chapters would remind you of the old information (because you need it to do the new problems), but I use The Idiot's Guide for that. There are some helpful hints in the book about using Excel, so I didn't need to buy a calculator just for this class. I'm still surprised that this book calls itself "Elementary" because there isn't anything elementary about this subject. Statistical formulas are pretty nasty, and problems can take hours to compete. Great overall, but an additional guide can be helpful if you're not taking this in a traditional classroom environment, or don't have a tutor.

I enjoyed the purchase although I was unable to download program needed to gain accesses to much needed data towards my ti 84. Would have given 5 stars if I didn't have that issue. I'd suggest for others get the physical book so that u have acess to that cd rom data and make sure you order the compatible link that needs to be ordered via Texas Instruments website . Thanks
