To help convince students that statistics is interesting and useful, Utts (U. of California, Davis) and Heckard (Pennsylvania State U.) present topical case studies, examples, and exercises relevant to standard topics in an introductory text. The changes to this edition --dates are not given for previous ones--are mainly organizational, e.g., material on random samples and surveys is logically presented before that on more complex types of studies. The two companion CD-ROMs contain databases formatted for computer software tools (e.g., MINITAB, SPPS, Excel) and the TI-83/84 graphing calculator; manuals for these tools; supplemental topics; and access to auxiliary online resources.
