KEY MESSAGE: The Eleventh Edition of this highly-regarded introductory text emphasizes inference and sound decision-making through its extensive coverage of data collection and analysis. McClave develops statistical thinking and teaches readers to properly assess the credibility of inferences-from the vantage point of both the consumer and the producer. This edition incorporates more exercises and more visual features, such as redesigned end-of-chapter summaries and an increased use of applets. This text assumes a mathematical background of basic algebra.

2.0 out of 5 stars Riddled with errors April 20 2009
By G. Finley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I am your standard intro stats student. The amount of errors in this text (spelling mistakes, equation typos, transposed graphics) distracts very much from the point. See page 222 for a good example of transposed graphics. These mistakes would have been easy to catch, but every time I see them, I have to do a double-take and waste a ton of time making sure I'm not learning things incorrectly.

The exercises in this book abound: it is easy for starters to understand the key concepts and the structure of the book is quite logical.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a very good book June 12 2012
By J52 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'd say that this book is not very good. It doesn't explain concepts very completely, and doesn't give you a good picture of what you're doing. I can definitely see a lot of people just "going through the steps" after using this book, rather than truly understanding the concepts behind Statistics. Some of the steps of the problems that the book walks you through seem really arbitrary, and it might take you a bit to understand why they did a step.

That said, if your professor is using this book, you'd better hope that your professor is a good one, and you'd better listen and take notes in class. I got lucky and had a good professor who posted his lectures online.

In terms of the exercises in the book, they're not very good practice. They're too easy, and only give you practice for the most superficial application of the concepts.

Additionally, the way the data for the problems is pretty stupid or lazily done. Some of the problems require your professor to post the data online for you to do them. Alternatively a lot of problems ask you to flip to other sections, just to use the data. It's annoying to flip between sections just to do one measly homework problem.

The software that comes with the book is dumb. Chances are, your university will have a particular software that they want you to use, rather than whatever comes on the disk with the book, for example, Jmp (written by a famous Stats software company, SAS. Their stuff is good. Jmp kind of sucks though and a lot of the time you have no idea how to use the software, while the help section tells you what you CAN do, not HOW to do something).

If you have this book assigned to you for a class, you won't learn much from it. It's only useful for the homework problems you're assigned (which aren't good practice. Your professor might screw you over with harder problems on the test), and the data tables in the back. I seriously recommend not buying it, and just go to the school library to use a class copy and do the homework.

The only thing I liked about this book was the way the Standard Distribution Table was set up. But even that is not the standard way it's normally represented.

This book sucked so much that the most I could sell it back for was 20 bucks. Even though this piece of crap cost me 120.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very Clear April 29 2014

I basically learned Statistics from reading this book. I paid attention in class (without taking notes), then I'd go back and re-read the appropriate sections, look at the examples, etc. I believe this book was very clear about most concepts contained within.
