Statistics is all around us in our daily lives, and Triola is dedicated to finding new real-world examples and data sets that make sense for todayrs"s reader. TheEleventh Editioncontains more than 2000 exercises, 87% of which are new, and 82% of which use real data. It also contains hundreds of examples, 86% of which are new and 94% of which use real data. By analyzing real data, students are able to connect abstract concepts to the world at large. As a result, they gain conceptual understanding and learn to think statistically, using the same methods that professional statisticians employ. Introduction to Statistics; Summarizing and Graphing Data; Statistics for Describing, Exploring, and Comparing Data; Probability; Discrete Probability Distributions; Normal Probability Distributions; Estimates and Sample Sizes; Hypothesis Testing; Inferences from Two Samples; Correlation and Regression; Goodness-of-Fit and Contingency Tables; Analysis of Variance; Nonparametric Statistics; Statistics Process Control; Projects, Procedures, Perspectives For all readers interested in introductory statistics.

A Rare Author of Exceptional Clarity April 4, 2011
by
Having used another stat textbook before, I feel that this book does a great job of breaking down the procedures step by step. I find the flow charts to be an invaluable help to understanding the subject. Having taken statistics for a total of 3 times, once in another textbook and twice in this particular one, I have found that the difficulty of the material greatly depends on the professor. The only problems that have occurred using this textbook is in the rounding of numbers. Either the author is not following his own rules or the writers of the sample problems do not follow the author's rules. Possibly the rounding rules need more clarification in future editions.

Poor Stat Book September 8, 2010
by
As a grad student at yale, I found this intro to stats book a little demeaning to those who have devoted their live to the awesome world of statistics. While this textbook is supposedly "the leader in elementary stats", I was disappointed. The author is more concerned with writing prose and not focused on actual math.
