This book is ideal for a one-semester course in business statistics, offering a streamlined presentation of Business Statistics, by Sharpe, De Veaux, and Velleman.
The Second Edition provides a wealth of examples and exercises so that the story is always tied to the way statistics is used to make better business decisions. New to this edition are For Examples (illustrative examples), Section Exercises (single-concept exercises), and part-ending Case Studies (which are more in-depth than the Brief Cases located at the end of chapters). To help students become proficient with technology, the Second Edition includes instructions for JMP®, Minitab®, and SPSS®, as well as new and expanded coverage of Excel® 2010 and the add-in XLSTAT™ for Pearson. Screenshots of output are included throughout the chapters.
