3.0 out of 5 stars Why do these same reviews turn up in Wonnacott? Sept. 19 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
It is very curious that the same customer reviews for the Mann Introductory Statistics textbook also appear, verbatim, on the page for Wonnacott and Wonnacott 's Introductory Statistics. What gives, Amazon? I personally haven't looked at Mann, so I am not reviewing it...only commenting on the apparent crossed wires somewhere in the Amazon database.

3.0 out of 5 stars referr backward and forward July 14 2002
By Mnid116
Format:Hardcover
I found this text book to have great examples. However, explanations were confusing from chapter to chapter.
Also, there were continuing references to tables, examples etc. that were either in the previous section/chapter or the next page/section/chapter. This is very distractive when one is trying to understand a concept.

3.0 out of 5 stars No solutions to the exercises is a fatal flaw Sept. 25 2006
By Charles Ashbacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I have taught a basic statistics class many times over the last several years and the book that I used was "The Basic Practice of Statistics" by David S. Moore. Since I am always on the lookout for a better book, I examined this one. One positive feature was immediately obvious. This book was easier to read. Some of that may be due to the fact that it is approximately  of an inch longer than the Moore book. It is also due to sharper contrasts and more effective use of color.

The coverage is standard; there are plenty of exercises although the authors commit what I consider to be a cardinal sin. There are no solutions to any of the exercises. In my mind, this is inexcusable, even if they are available on a companion website. Students work problems in many different locations and web access is often inconvenient and sometimes just impossible.

Sections on using the TI-84, Minitab and Microsoft Excel are included at the end of the chapters. While some people will find them helpful, they are in no means in the tutorial category. Devoting a page and a half to brief visual demonstrations of how to do one problem is to me a waste of paper and ink. My students would require more significant instruction if we were ever to use any of these options.

While the other features are strong, the lack of solutions to the exercises is an insurmountable hurdle to me. I will not be adopting it for use in the future. In my opinion, it would have been a better use of pages to include solutions to the exercises rather than the small sections on how to use technology.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR. June 20 2012
By Amin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great all-around book. DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED. Textbook is not so wordy therefore easy read, but contains sufficient terms, tons of everyday relevant examples, graphics, ...and other related subject info. Book's condition was as described. No pages missing, nothing destroyed, and the previous person marked key phrases and ideas -- ty for saving me time! Wish you all the best from hereon!
