Intro Stats Summary

Intro Stats by Richard D. De Veaux

The short, teachable chapters and approachable, colloquial style of Intro Stats has made it the most successful first edition Statistics text. Professors across the country report that students actually read the book. Now a hallmark feature, Intro Stats teaches students how to think statistically, show proper application of techniques, and tell others what they have learned. What Can Go Wrong? sections in each chapter give students the tools to detect statistical errors and debunk misuses of statistics, whether intentional or not.
