Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I would recommend this book.
I don't see it as as an introduction to statistics but rather as a tool for those who know there is a procedure that will really help them solve a present problem, but can't remember what it was nor exactly how to use it.

They're kind of obvious if you know the subject, but could cause people who're learning stats from this book (rather than refreshing) to make serious errors.
Four stars might seem a bit high for a book with significant errors, but it's clear, well organised, and doesn't throw you into the deep end too quickly. That's rare in a mathematics book.
I just hope the e-book edition gets fixed.
I've checked about 15 books for my students, and this is really a gem.
I used to refresh my statics study that was more than 20 years ago and ... I would have liked to have it used then. Thanks Ms. Boslaugh for this great job.
