I like the diversity in the problems too
By Emma C
This book explains the material well. The practice problems are spot on. I like the diversity in the problems too. They illustrate just how many different contexts statistics can be used in, thus validating the necessity of learning statistics for any career!

By Daniel Koenemann
We only used the first 4 chapter for this course. Most of the examples are good. The book assumes some prior knowledge of math and statistics but other than that is good.

So far, so good! (Using it this semester in class.) I don't do many online purchases, but getting this book cheaper than the campus bookstore proved to be a good experience for me. The book arrived in a timely manner and is in good shape.
