Although this review might not help anyone because rare is it that you can choose your own textbook but I am thankful that this is mine for my stats course. I actually enjoy reading it and it makes sense!!

Best textbook I've read July 9 2012
By Sean M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic Stat textbook. It's pretty much the only textbook I can actually sit down and read like a novel; it's a pleasure to read and is written very conversationally. The examples are great and presented in a very clear and easy-to-understand manner.
I originally bought this for a specific class, but this textbook could help your understanding of Statistics whether it's your class' textbook or not. I highly recommend it.

Decent Book Dec 27 2013
By JJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First off, if you never taken statistics before, this is not the easy stats of simple dice and poker probabilities. Treat any stats course that uses this book with the same respect as a calculus course (i.e. it's a bad idea to take stats and calc in the same semester). The first few chapters start light, mostly explaining normal distributions, correlation, regression, etc; easy enough. After a few chapters you start dealing with geometric, binomial, and Poisson distributions, which is a little bit harder, but doable. This is about where you have to remember a lot of formulas (e.g. formula for standard deviation is different for each distribution: it's sqrt(q/p^2), sqrt(npq), sqrt(lambda), respectively). And by around chapter 20 and onwards the material is really thick (at least for me); so keep up.

The book is 31 chapters long (your class may not cover the whole book; our class only went up to 26); each chapter being about 30 pages long, not counting end of chapter notes and exercises. Language of the book is easy to understand; not overly technical, mostly plain English. At the end of any chapter containing calculations, there's a section on how to do the calculations on different technology (TI-83/84, TI-89, SPSS, and other software). Pay extra attention to this section, it'll make your life easier (way faster than hand calculating) if your professor allows technology in the classroom. The back of the book contains answers for odd-number questions, and also various stats tables (for those who prefer hand calculations). Also note, the book contains yellow highlights that's printed by the publisher; don't worry, no one marked up the book you bought. I guess the author wanted to be extra sure that you knew which points were the important ones.

Exactly as stated, this is the book listed in the description. However, be cautious when buying from sellers not fulfilled by amazon. The copy I purchased was listed as 'like new' but upon receiving the book is was VERY apparent that there had been water damage to the first 150 pages or so. However, it was a good deal for what I received!

Good, sturdy cover. I wanted the cheaper version so I bought used so it had highlighting in it but whatever. The highlights can help haha Needed it for school, half the price of the one offered at school. So glad.
