Book DescriptionStats: Data and Models, Third Edition, will intrigue and challenge students by encouraging them to think statistically and by emphasizing how statistics helps us understand the world. Praised by students and instructors alike for its readability and ease of comprehension, this text focuses on statistical thinking and data analysis. The authors draw from their wealth of consulting experience to craft compelling examples, which encourages students to learn how to reason with data. This book is organized into short chapters that concentrate on one topic at a time, offering instructors maximum flexibility in planning their courses.
The text is appropriate for a one-or-two semester introductory statistics course and includes advanced topics, such as Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), Multiple Regression, and Nonparametrics.
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.
