Book DescriptionA Second Course in Statistics: Regression Analysis, Seventh Edition, focuses on building linear statistical models and developing skills for implementing regression analysis in real situations. This text offers applications for engineering, sociology, psychology, science, and business. The authors use real data and scenarios extracted from news articles, journals, and actual consulting problems to show how to apply the concepts. In addition, seven case studies, now located throughout the text after applicable chapters, invite readers to focus on specific problems.
This book is the most well-written textbook in Regression Analysis that i've ever read. This book can be used with any stat software in the market today. The exercise in the text can be done with SAS, SPSS, Minitab, etc., to name a few. The book clearly explains the formulas and summarizes them in boxes which make it easier to look back. The level of presentation of the materials is written with a minimum background of Algebra. Knowledge of basic statistics is important of course to be able to understand some of the concepts pertaining to statistical test and confidence intervals. In the appendix, derivation of formulas, linear algebra background, and sample applications in several studies are well presented. I would surely recommend this book as textbook in both undergarduate statistics class, as well as graduate classes in applied statistics.

The examples are old but the content is well organized and overall easy to understand. If you want to learn by yourself, this is the book for you.

The review section of chapter 1 is almost like a course in itself, making it a great "refresher," while at the same time small enough to add to the book as a whole without being intrusive into what the book is really about - regression. I would recommend this to any student or instructor.
