This introductory text fully integrates the use of computers with business statistics and presents it at a level that is accessible but challenging to students. It provides a non-intimidating approach to describing the concepts and applications of statistics while giving students the opportunity to observe and actually carry out computer-generated solutions using statistics packages like SPSS and MINITAB, or a spreadsheet package like Excel. A CD-ROM presenting data sets and special Excel macros that Robert Pavur and Kellie Keeling have created will be bound into the back of the book.

Al Kvanli is Associate Professor of Management Science and Statistics at the University of North Texas. He received the MA degree in mathematics from the University of Kansas and the Ph.D. in mathematical statistics from Southern Methodist University. For the past fifteen years Dr. Kvanli has been the statistical consultant for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Audit. In this role, he created much of the statistical software used by federal auditors and teaches sampling courses for state and federal auditors. He often serves as expert witness in appeals of monetary recovery by HHS and he has written a number of articles related to the application of statistical sampling in an audit environment.Review:
Writing style and level of mathematics are critical elements that can heavily influence the students' attitudes and motivation to succeed in the course. This is a text that students will find easy to read. This text is written with students in mind. The level of mathematics is kept within reach of the students without sacrificing accuracy, clarity, or the exposure a topic deserves.
The book is concise and includes the topics covered in class. The explanation of concepts are well integrated with application problems with the use of computer software (I do like that).
