I have not really read anything else about the subject of stats. But this book had great examples compared to other math textbooks. The step by steps were all labeled really well so walking through them was never a problem. It flows well and was easy to understand.read more
The formulas it contains. It has tables that have them listed so its super easy to flip back and look at them when needed.
I think this was a really good book that helped me a lot in my Statistics course. We had reading assingments each day and I have to admit that some topics were hard to understandread more

It was helpful to follow along in class and all the material covered was very well explained in the book.read more
I learned how to do all the problems for the homework since the examples in the book told you what to do step by step.
nothing, it helped me greatly with this course! It provided me with examples to help learn the lessons and had challenging and helpful practice questions.read more
I do not think this book could be any better. It helped me to get an A in this course. I always read each chapter and I am glad I did because all of the information is necessary and useful.
I have not read any other statistics books, so I cannot comment on comparison.read more
More examples to show how problems were completed. I had the hardest time understanding statistics and this book did not help very much.
This book covers statistics very effectively. I got an A in the class and I think the examples and sidebar information really helped. I also found that the way they brake things into steps deepened my understanding of the operations and concepts. There's a lot to cover and my study group would review the examples before trying to tackle the exercises assigned as homework. The answers in the back of the book were very useful for us to use as a practice test so even though I'm generally a nervous test taker, I felt well prepared and about as relaxed as I could be before the tests because the book presented everything in manageable bits and provided so many review options.read more
The primary subject of this book is economics. Our teacher skipped around a bit and gave us more than a few handouts so I don't think he found this book all that effective. For me, it was easy to read and understand the concepts but a couple of times I went online to watch some videos to reinforce the concepts covered in a chapter or two.
Book was pointless for the class. Teacher didn't even use it, however, when I needed extra review problems, the book was the place to go. I liked the extra problems.read more
Loved that it had half the answers in the back of the book but it would have been more beneficial to have all the answers instead of just half.
Everything! This is an awesome textbook for Statistics.read more
The class was MAT-151 Statistics 1, we used the book for everything, taking notes, studying, and the teacher even used it as a guide to teach class.
It helped me learn statistics without being overwhelmed.read more
It was easy to understand and had good examples. I would recommend this book.
It explanied the material well and you can tell it was designed to try and make it as easy as possible to understand.read more
The picture examples and the diagrams were most useful to me because I am a visual learner.
It described what methods to use in detail. It provided equations with detailed instructions. It showed mathematical equations being done.read more
This book was used for a college statistics class. The class was easy and straightforward.
Vast subject matter and gives exactness to what is intended to be gleaned but without the online explanations would have been difficult to learnread more
Gave examples in the book with answers in the back but some were not exactly relevant to the scope of knowledge
