Well written and well presented materials
on February 14, 2009
This book is the most well-written textbook in Regression Analysis that i've ever read. This book can be used with any stat software in the market today. The exercise in the text can be done with SAS, SPSS, Minitab, etc., to name a few. The book clearly explains the formulas and summarizes them in boxes which make it easier to look back. The level of presentation of the materials is written with a minimum background of Algebra. Knowledge of basic statistics is important of course to be able to understand some of the concepts pertaining to statistical test and confidence intervals. In the appendix, derivation of formulas, linear algebra background, and sample applications in several studies are well presented. I would surely recommend this book as textbook in both undergarduate statistics class, as well as graduate classes in applied statistics.
