Book Description

Lind/Marchal/Wathen is a perennial market best seller due to its comprehensive coverage of statistical concepts and methods delivered in a student friendly, step-by-step format. The text presents concepts clearly and succinctly with a conversational writing style and illustrates concepts through the liberal use of business-focused examples that are relevant to the current world of a college student. Known as a 'student's text,' Lind's supporting pedagogy includes self reviews, cumulative exercises, and coverage of software applications including Excel, Minitab, and MegaStat for Excel. The new 15th edition puts more emphasis on the interpretation of data and results and supports Lind's student-centric, step-by-step approach with McGraw-Hill's industry leading online assessment resource Connect Business Statistics.

1.0 out of 5 stars Statistical Techniques in Business & Economics April 16 2013
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

1.0 out of 5 stars 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars A good book but WOW at the number of typos/errors April 3 2013
By SSF - Published on Amazon.com
After so many mistakes in the answers to sample problems, by chapter 10 I don't trust any answers in the answer key. It's hard to focus on the concepts when I have found so many basic editorial mistakes that any graduate teaching assistant could have edited out before it went to print.
