Reviews
Mohadeseh Savadkoohi ★★★★★
Practices at all levels with a good book
IDOWU KUNLE ★★★★★
Its a very comrehensive and expalanatory book, cover the most essaential aspects anyone learing Statistics should know
Description
Many students find that the obligatory Statistics course comes as a shock. The set textbook is difficult, the curriculum is vast, and secondaryschool maths feels infinitely far away. "Statistics" offers friendly instruction on the core areas of these subjects. The focus is overview. And the numerous examples give the reader a "recipe" for solving all the common types of exercise.
This free eBook can be read in combination with and in some cases instead of the following textbooks:
