Publisher Comments:

Master MINITAB, the leading software package used in industry for quality and process improvement with the MINITAB HANDBOOK: UPDATED FOR RELEASE 16. This book illustrates by example and step-by-step instruction how to use MINITAB 16 to explore and analyze data and uses examples to illustrates how statistical concepts apply to data analysis. More than 4,000 colleges, universities, and high schools rely on MINITAB, making this software the educational standard.

Book News Annotation:

Ryan, Joiner, and Cryer present a supplementary textbook for first or second courses in statistics, before or after calculus, that explains how to use the Minitab statistical software program to analyze data. They emphasize aspects of statistics that are particularly appropriate to computer use, such as using plots creatively, applying standard methods to real data, exploring data in depth, using simulation as a learning tool, screening data for errors, manipulating data, and performing transformations as well as the usual methods such as multiple regression and analysis of variance. The handbook can also be used by practicing researchers who want to learn Minitab. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
