This book/CD-ROM package is intended for a one- or two-semester course for students who have had a high school algebra course. This sixth edition offers more emphasis on conceptual understanding and less emphasis on computation. Parallel presentations of the critical-value and P-value approaches to hypothesis testing are provided in this edition, to allow for independent coverage. Coverage of statistical technology has been expanded to include Minitab, Excel, and TI-83 Plus. Technology sections are integrated as optional subsections. The CD-ROM, new to this edition, contains some 600 exercises, data sets from the book in several electronic formats, three modular chapters, an Excel add-in, and Adobe Acrobat Reader. The author is affiliated with Arizona State University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
