Publisher Comments:

In the #1 bestselling brief text, The Basic Practice of Statistics (BPS), Moore brings the data analysis approach to the one-term course, with an accessible, fun style that helps students with limited mathematical backgrounds utilize the same tools, techniques, and interpretive skills working statisticians rely on everyday.

 

This extraordinary new edition of Moore's classic offers a number of innovations, including briefer chapters, a new problem-solving process, a wealth of new exercises, and new all-in-one place StatsPortal, with all the electronic tools instructors and students need.

Synopsis:

David S. Moore's name has come to stand for exceptional clarity and innovation within statistics textbooks, praised by students and instructors worldwide. The fourth edition of The Basic Practice of Statistics continues this trend by excelling both in presentation, features and pedagogy. A new 4-step process gives students the tools to solve complex problems and relate them to the real world. This fourth edition contains a CD ROM and is also complemented by StatsPortal, one of the most advanced web-based supplements currently available.
