HASH(0x9d8a77a4) out of 5 stars BEWARE: Kindle version does NOT come with the code to access excel files!!!!! Jan. 12 2012
By Steve - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thought I was saving money with the Kindle version of this book, but unfortunately found out that I have to purchase the CD-ROM access code separately. I wish Amazon made this more blatantly clear to me.

The book itself, however, is quite good.

HASH(0x9d8a79f0) out of 5 stars Textbook? or Software Manual Jan. 17 2012
By HD girl - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Between my Undergrad, Continuing Education, and the first 3rd of my Masters, I have read a lot of textbooks. This is the worst textbook I have ever had the misfortune to use. It is impossible to sit down and read a chapter, because all of the examples are in the online content. Part of the online content is a download of the authors' software. The book is written as a manual for their software. The software is very tempermental, and it takes forever to complete an analysis for the problems, because you can only run one function at a time, and have to save and exit, and re-open to go on to the next function, or it just won't work, or will shut itself down. A page full of problems does not indicate the end of the chapter like traditional textbooks, there are pages of problems throughout the chapters. This book is just frustrating! Unless you plan on convincing your company to purchase their software, as they suggest in Chapter 1, this book is NOT a good reference for anyone trying to learn Quantitative Analysis.

HASH(0x9d8a79b4) out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE - No Online Content Card Feb. 14 2012
By sky wade - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book title is completely misleading. There is an online content access card included, but the code has already been used and you will not have online access!

The book is pretty worthless without the online content or the purchase of stat tools. If you are purchasing this book for a class make sure that you do not need the online content. If you are purchasing this book for personal use be aware that it will be a difficult read and much of the book will not be useful without the online content or stat tools.

HASH(0x9d8a7ca8) out of 5 stars Quick Shipping, but no Access Card Feb. 1 2012
By CJo - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book itself is useful - it provides a decent supplement to the Statistics class I am in. The only hitch is that when I bought this book (specifically with an Access Card) I needed to have the card in it in order to access materials necessary for my course. Considering I paid for the access card, and my textbook did arrive shrink-wrapped, I'm not quite sure what happened....

Other than that, the book itself was in great shape and has been useful thus far.


Update: Amazon Customer Service is sending me a new book, and I'm returning the one I had. Hopefully this one will have the access card with it!

HASH(0x9d8a7d08) out of 5 stars Good book, tough restrictions with online content Oct. 2 2011
By Roman Reynebeau - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My book arrived promptly and also in great condition. The content in the book is well written and the authors try to keep things interesting by using real world examples.

Be aware that if you are buying this book used, even if the used book comes with the key, you will be forced to purchase a new key in order to a access the online content as each key only allows one download, the cost is around $30.
