I had to take Statistics as part of my degree cirriculum. On top of that, I was taking this class distance learning style; no classroom teacher, no nothing. So I was really depending on this book to explain the concepts and formulas in an easy way that I could understand. Luckily, the book did just that.
It is VERY well written and I believe anyone could learn Stats just by using this book, as I did. It also comes with a bunch of CDs that contain study guides, answer sheets, and software programs that makes Stats a snap.
If you take a Stats class, or just want to learn Stats on your own, this is the book to get!

Used Books are Incomplete
Buyers beware of purchasing used books. Classes generally use this text with Course Compass' MyMathLab, and you need a code to access the site. New books come with the code, but if you purchase a used book, the code might be already used. The code I purchased was $57.00. The code is more important than the textbook, so buy used books with caution.

Great price, but be sure you are getting what you need
By Valerie C. Nelson
This was a LOT cheaper through Amazon than at my school's bookstore, but I had to buy an access code separately through the MyMathLab site.
This isn't clear when you buy, but if Lab access is required by your college, you will not get the code you need unless you buy at the school bookstore. Fortunately, you can buy the book through Amazon -- for about $50 cheaper than at my school -- and then only pay $25 for the access code on line.
Just be sure you know what you need. Not all classes that come with My--Lab internet segments require that you buy a code, but you can always buy one later.
By the way, MyMathLab is amazing. It's making this Statistics class a piece of cake!
