This textbook includes all the features of the longer book, but is designed for a course in which the time available limits the number of topics covered. The book is written for general beginning statistics courses with a basic algebra prerequisite. Solutions are worked out step-by-step where appropriate and generally follow the same procedures used in the examples in the textbook.
