With Statistics Demystified, you master the subject one simple step at a time — at your own speed. This unique self-teaching guide offers problems at the end of each chapter and part to help expose potential weaknesses, and a 100-question "final exam" to reinforce what you learned.

* Absorb statistics jargon and notation

* Figure odds in games of chance and other situations using probability principles
