I am a biology major, which is very statistics-heavy. I have taken several stats courses before where they taught me to calculate complicated statistical equations by hand, but I left not really understand which test to use when. This is a fabulous stats book to start with. It breaks down all of the concepts in clear, easy to understand language so that even a lay person can understand. And honestly now in my real life, when I need to do a statistical analysis in my lab, this is the book I always turn to.

The buyer labeled this book as being in "very good condition." The text came with a lot of annotations wrhin- the cover was banged up- and it smelt of cigarette smoke.
