Understanding Business Statistics is a highly student-oriented business statistics product that makes statistics understandable for students with a wide variety of statistics backgrounds. The authors provide an intuitive discussion of basic statistical principles rather than a mathematically rigorous development. They use simple examples to introduce and develop concepts and procedures. For ease of reading, chapter sections are designed to ensure easy-to-follow continuity from one section to the next. This text provides students with frequent opportunities to check their understanding of topics as they move through the chapters, with exercises included at the end of most sections. In many cases, the exercises have been designed to extend chapter discussions rather than solely provide opportunities for drill and repetition. Understanding Business Statistics is written using a modular approach, allowing students to approach the subject step-by-step with very clear instructions.
