Summary: This brief version of the authors' classic text retains the traditional outline for the coverage of descriptive and inferential statistics. The user-friendly presentation includes features such as Key Concepts and Formulas, and helps students grasp the material while not sacrificing the statistical integrity of the subject. MINITAB (Versions 12 and 13) is used exclusively as the computer package for statistical analysis in this text.Edition/Copyright: 02
