Publisher Synopsis

... I was pleased to see this recently published textbook by Sally A. Lesik. Although its focus is on applications, formulas are not forgotten. The ample problem section at the end of the chapter requires the student to hand calculate values, but then verify the answers with the software. In fact, the book comes with a disc of MS Excel data worksheets. ... a good choice for general students ... This book is also a great choice for someone who wishes to teach themselves Minitab.-Significance, May 2011The book is a great reference for anyone who is new to Minitab or is an infrequent user who just wants a quick reference. It is well organized by topic... . Applied Statistical Inference with MINITAB (ASIM) could also be used as a text for students who have already had an introductory statistics class; I envision it for use by students in a research methods type of course. ... One of my biggest complaints when I teach introductory statistics classes is that it takes me most of the semester to get to the good stuff-inferential statistics. The author manages to do this very quickly. ... (I will be taking some lessons on how to speed through the material.) ... it is excellent as a quick review for those students who have already had some previous exposure. ... Every set of clearly written Minitab instructions includes appropriate screen shots, all of which should be accessible to those having little software experience.... All in all, I recommend ASIM. ... if one were looking for a book that efficiently covers basic statistical methodology and also introduces statistical software, ASIM fits the bill. ...-The American Statistician, February 2011, Vol. 65, No. 1This book/CD-ROM package is intended for a first course on applied inference for undergraduates and graduates in any field that uses statistics. The text is written to be beginner-friendly and oriented toward practical use of statistics, with less emphasis on theory.-Book News, June 2010 Read more...
