This books has great presentations, diagrams, and examples of concepts in elementary statistics and probability. It is thorough, yet easy to read. Students will enjoy examples that they can relate to.

This is THE BEST elementary statistics book I have read. Covers all concepts in a very easy to understand manner. The examples and solved problems show you eaxctly how a problem can be approached. For non-statiscians who want to use statistics to analyze their data, this is an excellent starting point. Wont boggle you with extensive formulae and derivations. But will tell you how and why the tests were developed and why and where you should use a particular test. Excellent ready reference for any data analyst.

This is by far the best stats book I've found. I actually used this book instead of the one assigned for my graduate course. Everything is explained very clearly from step 1 and on. The book assumes you have very little or no stats knowledge. There are plenty of examples to further clarify each concept, and full explanations are provided. The book is very well-written and the chapters are well connected.
I also found the pictures/graphics extremely helpful, especially in the sections on probability. I can finally make sense of combinations and permutations and other probability concepts.
Also extremely helpful is the way the book explains which formulas to use when, and why they should be used in that instance. This helps to pull everything together and see how many of the concepts relate to one another. I think this is key to understanding stats.
I've gone from fearing stats to actually enjoying it, all because it now makes sense thanks in large part to this book.

I use it for a class. When I get lost it provides examples. Some Rhodes are easy to understand; however there are some that are rather difficult. Has decent visuals.

The price was right! Was perfect for my stats class. It correlated closely with the professor's text book. $0.69 was great!
