Designed for the one-term introduction to business statistics course with a college algebra prerequisite, this text places emphasis on data and the common techniques and methods used to analyze them in business. It introduces concepts using practical examples and illustrates them with computer output from MINITAB™, Systat, Execustat, Microsoft Excel and other software packages. Review problems requiring students to use previously learned concepts also appear throughout to promote understanding of the relationships among statistical methods.

About the Author:

The late David Hildebrand earned his Ph.D. at Carnegie-Mellon University, and was affiliated with the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.

Review:

"This book is excellent overall in terms of topics covered, clarity and organization, reasonable brevity (necessary for shorter courses), great examples of statistical output from a many different types of statistical software, and the degree to which it illustrates a wide range of business applications. It also serves as a great reference for students after the introductory course is over. I think it superior to its competitors on these dimensions."

"What do you view to be the three key strengths of the text? Clear and lucid explanation of key concepts. Brevity and conciseness of treatment - a systematic and structured approach to explaining the concepts well, and thereby not testing student patience! The overall organization of the text in terms of the Definition Boxes, Example Boxes, Summary of key concepts at the start of each chapter, and overall flow of topics."

"What do you view to be the three key strengths of the text? Its inclusion of a fair number of modeling problems, its math level (more mature than college algebra), and its coverage of regression."
