Clearly explains concepts and stategies in mathematical statisticsReview:
"I like the fact that this text contains information about descriptive statistics and sampling techniques...I also thought the discussion of limit laws was well-written. This text is a nice blend of applications and theory without focusing on proofs." --Laura McSweeney, Fairfield University
"The main strength of the book is the great length that this author is willing to go in explaining concepts...This text covers quite a breadth of topics. With this text, it would be easy to use some of the sections that I would not cover in class." --Christopher Mecklin, Murray State University
"The topics are comprehensive, there are thorough explanations, a good number of worked out examples, and clearly written proofs...including proofs that are not usually seen at this level. The contents are appealing." --Pierre Grillet, Tulane University
"Panik's goal is to make the book very accessible, and in this goal he succeeds. His exposition is quite clear and I found ti quite easy to follow his many examples." --MAA REVIEWS
