Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This book teaches statistics with a modern, dataanalytic approach that uses graphing calculators and statistical software. It allows more emphasis to be put on statistical concepts and data analysis than on following recipes for calculations. This gives readers a more realistic understanding of both the theoretical and practical applications of statistics, giving them the ability to master the subject.
