I've found it difficult to use this book, as they often only walk you through one example for how to solve a problem, and then when it comes to the final end-of-chapter questions the problems are exceedingly difficult when compared to the examples they provided. There is little help in transitioning between the two. It is easy to solve simple problems that are dice rolls, because they are simple examples with a small set of outcomes, but it is difficult to take those over-simplified examples and solve the much harder questions at the end.

Similarly, transitions are horrible. Sometimes you turn the page to continue reading and feel like you skipped pages because they take off in another direction with little-to-no lead in.

While this book may be an acceptable in-classroom book supplemented with a lecture, it truly is horrible for trying to teach yourself data analysis.

Also worth noting is I purchased the kindle edition, and it is horrible. It without a doubt feels like a 12793-page powerpoint slideshow, and is terribly bookmarked for how much I paid for it. It's truly a disappointment.

Also be sure to check the edition. My school changed editions to 5th just prior to starting the course and they renumbered all the questions. Shady but expected from textbook companies.

This was a very good book. I had this book as a textbook for a business quantitative management course and found it extremely helpful. The wording is simple and easy to understand and the models and examples are useful. This book applies real-world scenarios to the concepts presented, which brings the concepts much "closer to home." Despite having a notoriously less-than-ideal professor for the course, this book helped me grasp the concepts and become decently proficient in this area of management.
