Introductory Statistics 8th edition is written for a one or two semester first course in applied statistics and is intended for students who do not have a strong background in mathematics. The only prerequisite is knowledge of elementary algebra. Introductory Statistics is known for its realistic examples and exercises, clarity and brevity of presentation, and soundness of pedagogical approach. Case studies appear in almost all chapters to provide additional illustrations of the applications of statistics in research and statistical analysis and the text contains a wealth of examples that cover a wide variety of relevant statistical topics.
