McGraw-Hill's Demystified Series teaches complex subjects in a unique, easy-to-absorb manner, and is perfect for users without formal training or unlimited time. They're also the most time-efficient, interestingly written "brush-ups" you can find.

You'll be able to learn more in less time, evaluate your areas of strength and weakness and reinforce your knowledge and confidence. Popular science/hobbyist writer Stan Gibilisco covers every important aspect of basic (algebra-based) statistics, including: notation and jargon, describing, tables, graphs, randomness and uncertainty, probability principles, distributions, obtaining and interpreting data, correlation, causation, and more.
