Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The chi-squared test is stated with gross error. On page 146, formula (7.2), a random variable that has a chi-squared distribution is claimed to be the test statistics. It is NOT. there is no one clear example that would indicate to the author his gross error. The author leaves it all to computers, and gives up on any intuition that may save him from such errors. If I need an answer to a statistical question, I would avoid this book.
