The target audience for this book is college students who are required to learn statistics, students with little background in mathematics and often no motivation to learn more. Maybe if I did not read it cover to cover and just read the middle part I would have given it a 4 but I felt that the last section on graphs just dragged on. The material is suitable for students who have successfully completed a single year's course in calculus with no prior knowledge of statistics or probability. I try to make clear what is being calculated, what assumptions are being made, and to give a derivation of results. Test Item File Need assistance in supplementing your quizzes and tests? The book covers the basic aspects of programming all the way to introducing complex statistical concepts and creating full-color 3D plots.
Clarity rating: 4 The textbook does not necessarily explain the derivation of some of the formulae and this will need to be augmented by the instructor in class discussion. The earlier material is easy to find but not consistently referred to in the text. It is aimed at people who need to understand statistics, but not develop it as a subject. It covers the standard topics of such a book: study design, descriptive statistics, the theory of hypothesis testing, t-tests, X2 tests, ANOVA and regression. Heydorn, Technometrics, Vol.

It is aimed at people who need to understand statistics, but not develop it as a subject. He has developed a variety of Bayesian methods for multivariate data, including covariance and copula estimation, cluster analysis, mixture modeling and social network analysis.
Monte Carlo summaries of posterior distributions play an important role in Bayesian data analysis. Instead of complicated mathematical proofs the author wrote about mathematical ideas.
