Elementary Statistics: A Step By Step Approach with Data CD and Formula Card

ELEMENTARY STATISTICS: A STEP BY STEP APPROACH is for introductory statistics courses with a basic algebra prerequisite. The book is non-theoretical, explaining concepts intuitively and teaching problem solving through worked examples and step-by-step instructions. In recent editions, Al Bluman has placed more emphasis on conceptual understanding and understanding results, along with increased focus on Excel, MINITAB, and the TI-83 Plus and TI-84 Plus graphing calculators; computing technologies commonly used in such courses.

The 8th edition of Bluman provides a significant leap forward in terms of online course management with McGraw-Hill's new homework platform, Connect Statistics – Hosted by ALEKS. Statistic instructors served as digital contributors to choose the problems that will be available, authoring each algorithm and providing stepped out solutions that go into great detail and are focused on areas where students commonly make mistakes. From there, the ALEKS Corporation reviewed each algorithm to ensure accuracy. The result is an online homework platform that provides superior content and feedback, allowing students to effectively learn the material being taught.

    Be aware that there are at least two versions of this book labeled as an eighth edition.

    The version described on this page ISBN-10: 0073386103 / ISBN-13: 978-0077460396, the version I ordered (used).

    Then there is the version I received ISBN-10: 0073386103 / ISBN-13: 978-0073386102, it is unclear if it is supposed to have a CD and Formula Card. The version I received had it, but another reviewer of that version did not receive it.

    Beware that if you receive the latter version the Amazon sell back price is about half that of the former. Be sure to check the ISBN to make sure you receive the book you ordered. I wish I had!

    As for the book itself, it seemed fine for the class taken. The CD was not really very useful, but you must buy what is required for the class.
