Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:
⭐I purchased this for my first online college statistics class. I do not consider myself to be mathematically inclined, so “dummies” was right up my alley. I was looking for something cut and dry, but this book was not it. Some key concepts were not found in the book, it is very wordy, and the examples can be indiscriminate. I used it exactly 3 times in 8 weeks.
⭐On Page 95 there are errors in the bold-faced text explaining how to calculate a Z test statistic. This text contradicts the explanation given for the same formula in Statistics for Dummies, Page 239. I will have to research the web to see if the sample standard deviation, or the population deviation, is used in the formula.Step 1 says to calculate the sample standard deviation. Step2 says to subtract the null value from the population standard deviation. It should say to subtract the null value from the sample statistic. Step 3 says to calculate the standard error with the population standard deviation. But we calculated the sample standard deviation in Step 1.Overall, Essentials often clears up something in the main Dummies book, and is much less wordy. I like using the two together, but certainly not with the issue presented here.
⭐I am a Computer Science professor who also teaches Analytics and Operations Research. This book is an excellent review or introduction to statistics which can be read in an afternoon or two. I will highly recommend it to MBA students who need to review or be introduced to the topic.
⭐This book helped me with my stats class big time! Wish I would have had it from week 1. Definitely worth the investment! Concepts are laid out simply and explained in layman’s terms. The only drawback is it does not cover the more advanved stats concepts introduced later in the semester, but it is still a total lifesaver! I do not regret this purchase at all! 4 stars for lack of content of more advanced concepts.
⭐This is a good book for someone like me who is taking this class and knows nothing about statistics. I love it!
⭐I bought this for the barista at my local Starbucks. We are always talji g about her college classes. Her last class at the Junior College is Statistics and she was very nervous. She thinks it will help her understand it.
⭐Did they cater to the lowest common denominator? I’ll let y’all know if I actually Understand statistics after reading this!
⭐This book helped me get a better understanding of statistics and I even got an A in my class. Never thought that day would come!
⭐this book helped me get a distinction in a Masters degree module – I hadn’t done any academic math since i was 16, and well over 10 years later i found i needn’t higher level statistical knowledge! I’m very grateful to the writers of this book
⭐I purchased this book in the hope that I would finally be able to understand Statistics.For many years I have been afraid of anything remotely mathematical, however, this book enabled me to overcome this with relative ease.The way that it broke down the information into bite size pieces enabled me to grasp each topic, and as I was studying for a exam I was pleased when I passed. This helped me to feel more confident.I would certainly recommend this book.
⭐Very useful for my university statistics course. All the basics in a very easy to follow way with no extra things to confuse things
⭐This is exactly what it says on the tin. It’s very concise, but it covers all the basics and it is mostly very easy to understand.
⭐The text is either so simplistic a child knows it, or so complex even after reading many times you have no idea what the author means. I took several statistic courses back in university and just wanted a refresher and after reading this was more confused then when I started.
