"Elementary Statistics: A Brief Version", is a shorter version of the popular text "Elementary Statistics: A Step by Step Approach". This softcover edition includes all the features of the longer book, but it is designed for a course in which the time available limits the number of topics covered. It is for general beginning statistics courses with a basic algebra prerequisite. The book is non-theoretical, explaining concepts intuitively and teaching problem solving through worked examples and step-by-step instructions. This edition places more emphasis on conceptual understanding and understanding results. This edition also features increased emphasis on Excel, MINITAB, and the TI-83 and TI-84. It also features graphing calculators, and computing technologies commonly used in such courses.
