Why buy this book?

Listen to what students who have used this text have to say!

“I really don’t want this to sound corny...but this is the first math class I’ve enjoyed and I think it’s not just because of the nature of statistics but because of the examples and scenarios [in the text].” David Mahon, University of Georgia

“...the examples are actually about real life: teen drinking, politics, internet use...other books have examples that are completely unrealistic...”Logan Troutman, ValdostaStateUniversity

“I’ve often struggled in math and need very clear explanations.  This book gave step-by-step examples that made it easy to understand.” Amanda M. Jenkins, MiddleTennesseeStateUniversity
