It's not that I chose this book to begin with. Professor of my statistics class picked it to be the textbook. First, there is no explanation for the discussion section of each chapter. I understand that maybe the author was thinking we would discuss in class so we would get answers from the professor. Since our professor does not use that, I have no idea if my reasoning or answer is correct when I read it at home. Thus it offers no help in enhancing my concept. Second, the author re-use statistics data in its examples AND in the practice and homework sections. So I am doing question E15 on page 142 and the data is on page 98. Then the graph Display 4.25 for question E33 is embedded between E35 and E36. Third, the solutions for exercises offer no explanation. Just yes, no. But I want to know why yes or why no, especially when I am already confused. I do not mean to be rude. It takes a lot of effort to compile material for a book. I just hope the arrangement is more user friendly so students can actually learn.

I have used this class for my statistics class, and it is absolutely awful. There aren't very good examples, and the practice/example problems almost have no similarity to the chapters of which they are in. The answers to every odd problem is in the back, and many students only copy those down and turn it in, but I can't say I blame them, because there is no way to be completely sure that you're getting the right answers. If I could change some things, I would add more relevant examples, and with some of the problems (like the first of the kind) would show you step by step of what to do. Then students wouldn't need to copy answers out of the back.

This book has very easy to read instructions for classroom activity. I would recommend this text for anyone considering taking statistics or who is shy of a math course towards a bachelor degree.
