Reviews about the ebook Elementary Statistics
I really liked Elementary Statistics textbook! I rented the hardcover, as my professor provided online access to the software (so I didn’t need any code) It arrived in very nice condition, and the textbook itself was laid out in a very logical, easy-to-read manner, with sidebars explaining various real-world applications of the material. Each chapter was laid out the same way, with a colored box containing all of the relevant requirements and formulas and a reminder of what each letter or symbol meant within the formulas. At the end of each chapter were colored boxes showing you how to perform the calculations using different types of technology. The author inserted his dry wit at various points throughout the text, which I enjoyed immensely. Let me put it this way: I’m a middle-aged woman returning to college. I hadn’t done the math for at least 12 years prior to this, and I had two years between my first statistics class and my second. In the first week of Statistics two, it became clear that my last class left off at chapter 5, while this class picked up at chapter 9. I was still able to get caught up quickly, understand the material, and pass the class with an A, using only this book no other materials.
- John De Gennaro:
It’s an ok textbook. A whole lot of poorly worded problems and unexplained solutions that don’t follow the format of the examples. The textbook does provide detailed calculator instructions, and it’s much more convenient to flip through a book than scrolling endlessly through a digital copy. I had both a (maybe bootleg) pdf and the rented hardbound text, and I found myself using the hardbound textbook most of the time. This textbook is definitely worth no more than the rental price. Let’s be honest, though, you will be learning most of the material from your professor and Khan Academy. As Mr. T said, I pity the fool that has to teach himself statistics with a textbook. Or something like that.
The only thing bad about renting this was that my course required that I have an access code for the online labs, which this didn’t come with and I had to spend an additional $100. Good if you don’t need the online access code. If you buy the access code the book is included online as well
It started off well with being able to understand and figure things out on your own. At around Chapter 5, it became confusing and the terminology was too technical. When dealing with math you really need to speak in layman’s terms so everyone just gets it. The book became irrelevant after a while.
Elementary Statistics is a good ebook to learn from if you are interested in statistics. Some of the formulas are a little hard to grasp at times but that is how any higher form of math is.
Elementary Statistics is a very exciting book. I would recommend it to my class
Elementary Statistics is very acceptable as a textbook. Although the author gets a bit too wordy at points (create a frequency based on the midpoints of the blah, blah, blahs…), he has a very realistic attitude toward the introductory statistics student. He realizes that statistics probably isn’t any fun for the student and tries to make it interesting, and has a witty, tongue-in-cheek style that makes the book bearable. He also points out the most important thing to remember from each chapter section, making it easier for the student to study. He also makes many comparisons to the liberal arts, making statistics much more understandable for a student like me: good with English, bad with numbers. I would have given this book 4 stars for its category… but really, who can say they “really liked” a math book?
everything you need to build a very solid foundation in stats. I actually enjoyed working through this book quite a lot. Math is not my strong suit, but I didn’t struggle with this guide.
Combined with the online tutorial Course Compass it’s excellent.
Excellent book. All concepts are followed by examples, that often are real-life. Well organized with technology guides.

A good book for a professional reviewing the basics from time to time. Minitab and ti technology applications are helpful.
