DAVID S. Gupta Distinguished Professor of Statistics at Purdue University, USA, and was 1998 president of the American Statistical Association. He is an elected fellow of the American Statistical Association and of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and an elected member of the International Statistical Institute. He has served as program director for statistics and probability at the National Science Foundation. I like to keep a couple of statistics books on hand to reference different scenarios, and this book is a good addition to the group. It's also nice how the content won't change too much in the future, so this book should be relevant for a long time.

With this phenomenally successful approach originally developed by David Moore and George McCabe, statistics is more than just a collection of techniques and formulas. Instead, students develop a systematic way of thinking about data, with a focus on problem-solving that helps them understand statistical concepts and master statistical reasoning.

The front cover shows a painting entitled 0 to 9, by the American artist Jasper Johns in 1961. In this work, the structure of the painting is determined by number sequence, just as our graphical summaries are determined by the numerical calculations that we perform when we analyze data. Can you find all of the digits in the painting? Introduction to the. Practice of Statistics.

Rare book
I think statistics books -- and statistics classes for that matter -- are generally just very bad, and this one is no exception.

Novice statisticians (and really, novice anything) need a very basic conceptual model to which everything one learns in statistics can be hooked back. For example (and I'm not a statistics professor, so this is actually wrong, but the purpose is to illuminate what a conceptual framework might look like for a novice), one might say something like "all of statistics is about comparing your sample to the population or your sample to another sample." And so everything a new statistics student does can and should be explicitly connected back to that idea. Yes, there are various ways to go about doing that, but when we're dealing with z-tests or t-tests or chi-square, those are just methods for comparing the sample to the population or another sample. (Again, that's wrong, but I want to highlight the importance of coming up with a RIGHT one.)

This book does what every other stats book does: describes statistics in deeply theoretical terms, tries like hell to bring that to life in vague examples, and then hits hard with notation notation notation. It is not special nor interesting. It just serves to turn off people who might want to become statisticians.
I had this book for my introductory statistics class at Michigan University.

Pros:-

1)The book is great for someone who has never studied statistics before and go through everything step by step.

2)Important formulae is highlighted.

3)Includes the answers to every alternate problems.

4)Has a CD for additional exercises.

Cons:-

1)You have to refer back to data and tables included in the chapter while doing the questions.Trust me,you will find it frustraiting.

Do not bother buying the new version. I compared this edition to the new editions my classmates had and honestly,there are no significant changes.

Oh statistics...how I loathe you. This book, though, takes some of my trepidation away. Plenty of examples for each new concept. I also liked how they emphasized how each equation built upon pervious equations. I like to keep a couple of statistics books on hand to reference different scenarios, and this book is a good addition to the group. It's also nice how the content won't change too much in the future, so this book should be relevant for a long time.
Solid statistics book. Covers concepts in enough detail for anyone to quickly understand.
This is the textbook for my biostatistics class, so I didn't exactly choose whether or not to buy it. For future students, it is written clearly, with a lot of problems to master (essential to comprehending the material) and with the answers to the odd problems in the back.
This is really a nice piece of work. It explains Statistics so easy and well and no important information are left out. It is full of good illustrations, which really helps to understand even the most complicated equation. And probably the best thing are the exercises at the and of each chapter and after each important paragraph. These exercises really help a lot and are also a good practice for exams!
This textbook is terrible, but if you're buying this book it's probably because you don't have a choice. I had to use it for my Stats class where my teacher didn't speak English very well so I was mostly relying on the textbook. It is impossible to just learn from this book. It does not explain anything. It shows you all these ways of finding some number to describe some set of data (although it doesn't even do that very well!) but it doesn't tell you why it is useful or what it tells you about the data. One cannot learn statistics from this book. All it's good for is problems.
ok
