I am your standard intro stats student. The amount of errors in this text (spelling mistakes, equation typos, transposed graphics) distracts very much from the point. See page 222 for a good example of transposed graphics. These mistakes would have been easy to catch, but every time I see them, I have to do a double-take and waste a ton of time making sure I'm not learning things incorrectly.

I'd say that this book is not very good. It doesn't explain concepts very completely, and doesn't give you a good picture of what you're doing. I can definitely see a lot of people just "going through the steps" after using this book, rather than truly understanding the concepts behind Statistics. Some of the steps of the problems that the book walks you through seem really arbitrary, and it might take you a bit to understand why they did a step.

That said, if your professor is using this book, you'd better hope that your professor is a good one, and you'd better listen and take notes in class. I got lucky and had a good professor who posted his lectures online.

In terms of the exercises in the book, they're not very good practice. They're too easy, and only give you practice for the most superficial application of the concepts.

Additionally, the way the data for the problems is pretty stupid or lazily done. Some of the problems require your professor to post the data online for you to do them. Alternatively a lot of problems ask you to flip to other sections, just to use the data. It's annoying to flip between sections just to do one measly homework problem.

The software that comes with the book is dumb. Chances are, your university will have a particular software that they want you to use, rather than whatever comes on the disk with the book, for example, Jmp (written by a famous Stats software company, SAS. Their stuff is good. Jmp kind of sucks though and a lot of the time you have no idea how to use the software, while the help section tells you what you CAN do, not HOW to do something).

If you have this book assigned to you for a class, you won't learn much from it.

The exercises in this book abound: it is easy for starters to understand the key concepts and the structure of the book is quite logical.

I basically learned Statistics from reading this book. I paid attention in class (without taking notes), then I'd go back and re-read the appropriate sections, look at the examples, etc. I believe this book was very clear about most concepts contained within.

This book has great practice problems, but if you are relying solely on the book to teach you then I would try a different book. Luckily I had a fantastic professor to aid me in understanding the material.
