The text isn't easy to understand but the problems can be very challenging, so this book relies heavily on the instructor to show you how to use the charts and what not. Over all I learned what I needed to learn to pass the class.

Pretty good- but having the correct teacher to explain the book is what made it AWESOME! Good luck with yours.

I purchased this book for a statistics course required for my master program. The chapters are easy to read but I think it would have been better to have more examples in each section.
