Summary

The book is a higher-level introduction to Business Statistics text designed for use in a one-term course. It fully integrates the use of computers with statistics, by describing the concepts and applications of business statistics while giving users the opportunity to observe and actually carry out computer-generated solutions using SPSS, Microsoft® Excel, and MINITAB. Detailed how-to information for all three types of software is provided in the chapter appendices. Professors who teach a one-term course and prefer to use higher-level problems will find this textbook is a perfect fit for their needs. The appropriate KPK Excel Macros (add-ins) that authors Pavur and Keeling have created may be used within the new book, expanding Excel's power in both graphing and regression analysis. The macros are built into the book's topical presentation, for even easier classroom integration.
