I have always tried to veer away from statistic classes. This textbook has plenty of examples to simplify the statistical formulas used in my class.

I chose a five star rating because the course book was exactly what I needed yet it is full of so much current events. I highly recommend this reading for those who desire to learn statistics for everyday life.

Great condition, no complaints, shipped faster then I thought. Paper back book. I was required to get this book for my statistics class, doesn't have as many test questions as I would like, might want to get a work book too.

It was a required text for a class I took. I found it easy to read and relatively easy to follow, despite the topic.

Wise words from Homer Simpson notwithstanding, you might find yourself in agreement with him after a couple of months with Statistical Reasoning for Everyday Life.

But perhaps I should backtrack. First and most important, this version of the book does NOT come with the MyStatLab access code. That edition can be found here: Statistical Reasoning for Everyday Life Plus NEW MyStatLab with Pearson eText -- Access Card Package (4th Edition) It's a mere $9 more than this one, still at the (current) low price of $122.19.

Or, if you decide to play this one like I did, you rent the book for $21 and ask your professor if she has any spare access codes lying around. Pearson Publishing arms professors with a dozen or so free codes, and students never ask for them. A shame, considering I saved $100 by doing so. Anyway, moving on...

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess most people who are considering purchasing this book are either really intelligent, intrinsically-motivated high school students destined to change the world or mathematically-challenged college students who need to fulfill the dreaded math general education credit (don't feel bad if you're among the latter group- I am too, so you're not the ONLY moron who still can't math), which makes reviewing this slab of numbers kind of a useless exercise. I mean, you're going to have to buy it for class even if I tell you it sucks.

Fortunately, Statistical Reasoning for Everyday Life does not suck. In fact, it's organized, well-written, and quite accessible for us beginners. (Again, there's no shame in being stupid- we excel in other areas. Like history. Or intramural athletics.

I really hate statistics but this textbook was helpful and explained most ideas pretty well. I think this book is useful as long as you have a good instructor to answer questions that arise. It arrived on time and in great condition.
