ESSENTIALS OF STATISTICS FOR BUSINESS AND ECONOMICS, FOURTH EDITION is an introductory stats textbook that emphasizes statistical concepts and applications. The discussion and development of each technique is presented in an application setting, with the statistical results providing insights to decisions and solutions to problems.

The essentials version features selected core topics from the authors' market-leading STATISTICS FOR BUSINESS AND ECONOMICS, NINTH EDITION presented in 13 chapters. It includes the highly-regarded strengths of the longer text, including the problem-scenario approach that uses real-world examples to introduce stat techniques.

The single most important factor in the selection of ASW's Essentials of Statistics was the quality of the homework exercises. Another factor was that the text used the Excel package and had the Excel computer supplement. The text is also readable for our average student, this is another very important factor when selecting a text.
The characteristics that figured most strongly in my decision to adopt ASW's Essentials of Statistics for Business and Economics were the end of chapter review and formulas, topic selection, and review questions.
The characteristics of ASW's Essentials of Statistics for Business and Economics that figured most strongly in my decision to adopt the text was that the book presents a clear and practical explanation of statistical concepts. It also contains real-world examples and problems. The book helps instructors teach fundamental statistical thinking to their students.
