●TRUSTED TEAM OF DISTINGUISHED AUTHORS ENSURES THE MOST ACCURATE, PROVEN PRESENTATION. Prominent leaders and active consultants in business and statistics, authors David R. Anderson, Dennis J. Sweeney, Thomas A. Williams, Jeffrey D. Camm, James J. Cochran, Michael J. Fry and Jeffrey W. Ohlmann deliver an accurate, real-world presentation of statistical concepts you can trust with every edition.
●SYSTEMATIC APPROACH EMPHASIZES PROVEN METHODS AND APPLICATIONS. Students first develop a computational foundation and thoroughly master the use of techniques before moving to statistical application and interpretation of the value of techniques. Methods Exercises at the end of each section stress computation and use of formulas, while Application Exercises require students to apply what they know about statistics to real-world problems
Methods Exercises and Applications Exercises
The end-of-section exercises are split into two pails. Methods and Applications. The Methods exercises require students to use the formulas and make the necessary computations. The Applications exercises require students to use the chapter material in real-world situations. Thus, students first focus on the computational "nuts and bolts" and then move on to the subtleties of statistical application and interpretation.
Margin Annotations and Notes and Comments
Margin annotations that highlight key points and provide additional insights for the student are a key feature of this text. These annotations, which appear in the margins, are designed to provide emphasis and enhance understanding of the terms and concepts being presented in the text.
At the end of many sections, we provide Notes and Comments designed to give the
student additional insights about the statistical methodology and its application. Notes and Comments include warnings about or limitations of the methodology, recommendations for application, brief descriptions of additional technical considerations, and other matters.
Data Files Accompany the Text
