Summary

"When The College Board created the Advanced Placement (AP) statistics course, they recommended Moore and McCabe's Introduction to the Practice of Statistics and Moore's The Basic Practice of Statistics. Still, these books lacked several key elements such as activities and special topics. So, starting with the classic features of IPS and BPS, veteran AP statistics instructor Dan Yates fashioned a text that perfectly matched the College Board's recommended syllabus-The Practice of Statistics. This text is now the #1 bestselling title for AP high school statistics courses."
