Book Description

Classic, yet contemporary. Theoretical, yet applied. Statistics for Business and Economics, Eleventh Edition, gives you the best of both worlds. Using a rich array of applications from a variety of industries, McClave/Sincich/Benson clearly demonstrates how to use statistics effectively in a business environment.

 

The book focuses on developing statistical thinking so the reader can better assess the credibility and value of inferences made from data. As consumers and future producers of statistical inferences, readers are introduced to a wide variety of data collection and analysis techniques to help them evaluate data and make informed business decisions. As with previous editions, this revision offers an abundance of applications with many new and updated exercises that draw on real business situations and recent economic events. The authors assume a background of basic algebra.

3.0 out of 5 stars Standard Textbook, you get what you put into it Sept. 16 2012
By J. Koehler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The textbook is self I felt explained the topics clearly and used language that made it easy to follow. Most of the examples where good and explained the topics well. This edition includes the MyStatlab which my class required, and also why this book costs so much more than it should. The MyStatlab does provide may practice problems that you can work out, additionally my professor created the homework problems through MyStatlab. The issue I have with MyStatlab is that you must input your answer exactly as it wants it. Generally it will say round to 2 or 3 decimal places but you need to make sure to hold on to many more than that through the many steps of problems. Other problems do not specify the number of decimal places and you have to hope that you are correct. The other helpful portion of the book I enjoyed was the explanation of how to do different topics in various statistics programs. If you ever actually have to work with statistics you will most likely be using one of the programs included and it is nice to have that included.

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.

This book helped me to figure out how to work the complicated Statistic problems. The breakdown of how and why really makes it easier for the reader to apply the material to everyday business.

Quality was on point, book came in quickly and I've now been using it for a whole year (two semesters of different stats classes). Not a thrilling read.
