Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Offers a comprehensive update of this classic statistics textbook, with careful adherence to the intent, approach, and style of the original authors.

Book News Annotation:

**** Earlier editions of this classic are cited in BCL3. This is a "methods" book, intended to serve the practical needs of those who have professional need to use the methods of statistics, and who are determined to do so responsibly, but who have no desire to be swept into arcane mathematical byways. Any such book which runs to eight editions (the first, by George Snedecor as sole author, appeared in 1937) must be doing something right, and must deserve its reputation as a kind of "bible"! The effort in the present edition has been to update some of the notation, but otherwise to preserve the essential style of the original. Nicely produced, with many (!) examples, essential tables, references to the more recent literature.

Synopsis:

The First Edition of this book was published in 1937 with George W. Snedecor as the sole author. Snedecor asked William G. Cochran to do the revisions for the sixth edition, and Cochran was listed as the second author of the sixth and seventh editions. The present edition was prepared by several members of the Department of Statistics at Iowa State University. The revisions were guided by the principle that the work should remain the work of its original authors; thus, much of the material remains as previously published. A significant change in this edition occurs in the notation used to describe the operations of multiple regression. Matrix algebra replaces the original summation operators, and a short appendix on matrix algebra is included.
