Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics, 4th

“Your book has changed my perception and attitude towards statistics. It is very well written, the language is completely user friendly and the progression of new concepts within each chapter is fantastic. Although my class is only on chapter 5 at this point, I have found my interest in the concepts and order in which you introduce them becoming greater. I thank you with very much appreciation as I was someone who dreaded taking statistics and thought I hated it!” – Jessica Maes, graduate student

The Fourth Edition of Neil J. Salkind’s bestselling text introduces students to the fundamentals of basic statistics in an informative, personable, and unintimidating way. The author expertly guides students through various statistical procedures, beginning with basic descriptive statistics and correlation and graphical representation of data and ending with inferential techniques including analysis of variance.

    This book has been quite a challenge. The material itself is not hard and is well explained. The only problem is ALL THE ERRORS IN THE BOOK!! There are so many errors, it nearly makes it impossible to learn. Every chapter you have to go to the website to look up the correct formulas or data sets or answers for the back of the book. Incredibly frustrating. I’m just trying to do my work and learn for grad school. This book is not helping me keep my stress level down. The idea for the book is good. When the errors get corrected, the information will be very helpful.

    Amazon.com is selling the wrong book – DO NOT BUY, January 27, 2011

    This review is from: Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics, 4th (Paperback)
    For students wanting to save paper and read on the go, DO NOT BUY the e-book version of this text. Amazon.com has mislabeled the item as the fourth edition of “Statistics for People…” The e-book is actually an old version of the Excel Edition, which differs substantially from the title advertised on the page.

    Best stats book I’ve read or own, February 12, 2011
    By 

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I have eight stats books in my bookshelf, from Dummy’s Guides to college textbooks. Salkind’s text presented the material, seemingly directed toward graduate students, in the most clear and easy to understand manner of all I’ve read. It was actually enjoyable to read. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with this one.
