This latest edition does a decent job of explaining the world of statistics. They also provide step by step instructions for TI-83 and TI-92 calculator use as well. What makes this book good is the use of "real world" data not some made up study to generate statistical problems. However, the solutions are very poor. Many answers in the back of the book are incorrect and the solutions manual is of little help. The Professor finaly generated her own solutions manual and handed it out to the students. My favorite part in the book is the history lessons (one pagers) about famous people in statistics. Ever wonder how Statistics and Beer are related? Turn to chapter eleven and find out.

This is much different than any other math book I've seen. The homework exercises are all throughout the chapters and it can be difficult to find them. Also, the information is not organized nicely with headings, so it is a difficult book to study with as it is hard to find what you are looking for. I had to buy this book for a college course, but as a stats book to own because you want to, it is probably not the best.

This book Introduces lots of basic ideas and principles on statistics in a way that will efficiently prepare the reader for the exam. It makes sure enough guidance is provided so that it can be studied without a tutor. Yet, compared to the application of statistics, the equations are not explained or proved so well, and therefore get hard to comprehend sometimes.

This is by far the best math text I have ever used in my life. Coming into my AP Statistics course this year, I was someone who had always hated math and never done quite as well in it as in other subject areas--I thought math wasn't for me. The combination of an amazing teacher this year and this book changed all that. The real world examples used in this stats text make the entire thing completely practically applicable. It's literally changed the entire way I think and see the world around me. I'm not even halfway through the book with the class, but now I understand what Descartes meant when he said "Give me mathematics, and I can build you a world." This text has definitely changed my view on mathematics, allowing me to see that, indeed, absolutely everything is statistical and mathematical. I am now even thinking about majoring in Statistics in college. Simply an awesome, awesome text.

Five stars and then some!

Clear explanations and good problems. Topics, problems, tests, are all perfect for studying/teaching an AP Statistics class. This is the book I use when teaching my AP Stats class

I teach high school AP Statistics and use this textbook. I think the text does a great job of covering all the topics needed for the Exam and provides a good mix of thought-provoking problems and good explanations of procedures if you take the time to carefully read.

As one reviewer pointed out, the problems are interspersed througout a section, not all grouped at the end of a section. This makes it awkward when trying to find a particular problem number. Also, as mentioned, the headings could have been done better to help outline the sections and chapters more easily.
