One thing that should be noted however is do not bother trying to trade in this book under the same ISBN number you purchase here. Since this is a package product the book shows the ISBN of the book alone, so when you trade in the book under the ISBN you purchased it as you get rejected as the incorrect book. Amazon really should not allow you to try to trade in the book as the package and direct you instead to the book on its own. And if you complain that you traded in the correct book they only direct you back to your trade in account and the merchant said it is the incorrect book, even though it isn't.
MyStatLab, just like MyMathLab is equally guilty of not giving you adequate step-by-step explanations. It will give the option of "Show me an example" or "Help me solve this problem" and as you're going through the steps you are either left to come up with the solution on your own or the program gives you the answer without explaining where it came from.
If the curriculum didn't require it, I would never have purchased this book. There has got to be a better book out there that teaches you the basics.
For class purposes this book works great. As just a book review in general, it was ok. If you are trying to learn business stats on your own I probably would not recommend this book as much. Some of the explanations are not very clear, and a lot of the examples were not very good (in my opinion). It could have been a lot more straightforward than it was in this book.
