• Crucial elements are boxed to highlight important concepts and methods essential for learning statistics. At the end of each chapter, all of its key ideas and formulas are summarized.
• A rich collection of examples and exercises is included. These are drawn from a large variety of real-life settings. In fact, many data sets stem from genuine experiments, surveys, or reports.
• Technology: At the end of most chapters are step-by-step directions for using MINITAB, EXCEL, and the TI-84 calculator. This concentrates the presentation of special purpose instructions so that, with few exceptions, only computer output is needed in the text.
• Regression analysis is a primary statistical technique so Johnson/Bhattacharyya provides a more thorough coverage of this topic than is usual at this level. Complex formulas and calculations are judiciously replaced by computer output so main ideas can be easily learned and appreciated by students.
• Computer Aided Statistical Analyses use software packages that can remove much of the drudgery of hand calculation and plotting. They allow students to work with larger data sets, where patterns are more pronounced, and make complicated calculations
• A Convenient Data Bank at the end of the book contains a substantial collection of data. These data sets, together with numerous others throughout the book, allow for considerable flexibility in the choice between concept-oriented and applications-oriented exercises.
