by Lloyd R. Jaisingh
Geared toward students, as well as graduates looking to get reacquainted with the subject, this guide provides a hands-on approach to statistics. Beginning with the fundamentals-pie charts, bar charts, and frequency-the text systematically moves through bivariate data and probability distribution. Along the way, "Quick Tips" give shortcuts and points to remember. Each chapter concludes with a bunch of multiple-choice and true-false questions and written exercises. These tests and a comprehensive final at the book's end show readers how statistical analysis applies to everyday circumstances.
