Description

In this revised text, master expositor Sheldon Ross has produced a unique work in introductory statistics. The text's main merits are the clarity of presentation, contemporary examples and applications from diverse areas, and an explanation of intuition and ideas behind the statistical methods. To quote from the preface, 'It is only when a student develops a feel or intuition for statistics that she or he is really on the path toward making sense of data.' Ross achieves this goal through a coherent mix of mathematical analysis, intuitive discussions and examples.
