Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by developers Barbara Ryan and Brian Joiner, and professor of statistics Jon Cryer, this text illustrates by example and step-by-step instruction how to use MINITAB 14 to explore and analyze data. The book introduces readers to MINITAB software while understanding that they may also be learning statistics at the same time. The authors illustrate how statistical concepts apply to data analysis through examples. More than 4,000 colleges, universities, and high schools rely on MINITAB, making this software the educational standard. Because MINITAB is the leading package used in industry for quality and process improvement, students who learn MINITAB in class will have the advantage of knowing how to use a real-world business tool.

Book News Annotation:

Intended as a supplement for a first or second course in statistics, this handbook shows how to use the statistical software Minitab to analyze data, perform statistical computations, and create graphs. Updated to release 14 and Windows XP, the fifth edition adds a chapter on creating reports and emphasizes menu commands rather than session commands.
