"Elementary Statistics: A Brief Version, 4th Edition" is a shorter version of Allan Bluman's popular text "Elementary Statistics: A Step by Step Approach, 6th Edition". This softcover edition includes all the features of the longer book, but is designed for a course in which the time available limits the number of topics covered. The book is written for general beginning statistics courses with a basic algebra prerequisite. The book uses a non-theoretical approach, explaining concepts intuitively and teaching problem solving through worked examples step-by-step.
