Format: Hardcover
An easy book where all you have to do is plug in numbers, provided you know which. A superficial book, full of superficial exercises that teaches no concepts. Nothing more than a drill book. Not worth the cost.Statistical Techniques in Business and Economics

200 Bucks for this? Aug. 31 2012
By ToTheMax - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is by far the worst text book I have been forced to buy in all my schooling career to date. There are so many typos sprinkled through the book that one would have to think that there is no way an editor even bothered reading it.

The book also contritics itself repeatedly making it seem like the authors didnt even collaborate between sections and pages in order to come to any kind of solid conclusion. One page it will tell you that in a project you should always do "x" and on the next page it tells you the opposite. Then throughout the book it randomly changes to talking in first person indicating how the author used "x" when writing the book then swaps back, changing the entire voice of the book constantly.

The entire book was an absolute joke and the fact that it costs as much as it does makes it so much worse.

It's a textbook Oct. 7 2014
By ONSLO ERRENS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a textbook for Business Statistics and my teacher has used it for several years, she is using a more current edition this semester. She suggested to students that this older edition would work just as adequately in the event we did not want to purchase the new edition. All the exercises are the same. Good textbook, examples walk you through concepts well, and material is well defined. Hope to not need again.
