MULTIPLY your chances of learning STATISTICS

Trying to understand statistics but feeling a bit uncertain? Here's your solution. Statistics Demystifed, Second Edition helps you master this fundamental topic with ease.

Written in a step-by-step format, this practical guide begins by reviewing background mathematics, probability basics, and descriptive measures. The book goes on to demonstrate statistics in action with coverage of sampling, estimation, hypotheses, prediction, regression, correlation, causation, order, and chaos. Detailed examples, concise explanations, and worked-out problems make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce learning.

It's a no-brainer! You'll learn about:

  • The probability fallacy
  • Random sampling
  • Estimation
  • Assumptions and testing
  • Chaos, bounds, and randomness
  • Variance and standard deviation
  • Correlation and cause/effect relations
  • The use of statistics in medicine, law, math, and engineering

Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Statistics Demystified, Second Edition helps you master this essential subject.
