This textbook has decent examples, lots of definitions, and is constructed in a logical and orderly manner. My class was using the 11th edition, but I cheaped out and bought this one, used, and found that there was no little to no difference in content. The newer book is prettier and has less annoying colors to read in darker lighting, but this older edition works just fine.
The authors have some math mistakes (probably typos) in some of the statistical calculations in chapters 17 and 18 that make following the topic a bit challenging. These errors are again replicated in the 11th edition, too.
Overall it was a good read and easy to understand.
