I had to buy this book for class. That being said the book was relatively easy to understand. I am not a “math person” and the statistics class I was taking was on-line only, so I had to understand the material. This book was great for me because it explained and gave examples of problems. The on-line assistance available was nice even though I didn’t have time to really use it.
This book is internet – compatible, user friendly, easy to comprehend and easy to navigate with lots of advice examples and tools.
Much better than the book my prof required for the course. Explains how one concept relates to other concepts. Highly recommended.
