I know statistics is a very hard subject on it's own, but this textbook is very difficult to read, and has very few decent examples. I feel that i have had to turn to YouTube and other sites more during this course than any I've had before simply due to the text. I am an "A" average student, but I do not feel that i could stay on that course if I relied on this book alone for my current Quantitative Management course. I know some classes require this book, but if a choice is given, I'd look for other options.

I've taken another stats course before this one (granted, it was only an Elementary Statistics class, but much of the material was the exact same-there are only so many ways to do probability distribution and Z-tables) and I can't say enough bad things about this book. Awful examples, overly technical explanations and as dry as eating desert sand. If you're forced to use this book, I hope you have an amazing teacher or some other resources available to you, because this book will make you hate what can otherwise be a somewhat interesting subject. Seriously, if you have ANY other option, take it. 1 star is too many, but Amazon doesn't let me select 0 or 1/2.

This text is well done, but you might check out Understanding Business Statistics by Ned Freed at [...] . In my opinion, it is better written, has better coverage and, possibly best of all, it only costs $39.95.

Not a very good book, but the seller was great. Fast shipping and the book condition is just as described. Stats is so boring.
