About this book

Designed to be used in a first course for graduate or upper-level undergraduate students, Basic Statistical Methods and Models builds a practical foundation in the use of statistical tools and imparts a clear understanding of their underlying assumptions and limitations.

Rosenblatt writes for introductory (non-calculus-based) courses in statistics that offer a clear understanding of statistical procedures together with underlying assumptions and limitations. The author brings a fresh approach to the understanding of statistical concepts by integrating throughout Minitab software, providing valuable insight into computer simulation and problem-solving techniquesRosenblatt clearly treats the subject matter by carefully wording the explanations and by having readers work with computer-generated data with properties specified by readers. Numerous solved examples; exercises; epilogue with extensions of topics covered. An interesting and useful book. Recommended. - CHOICE This text attempts to address the needs of those who use statistics but are not statisticians. Writing such a text poses two challenges. The first challenge is to present mathematically complex ideas in such a way as to engender an intuitive understanding of the concepts without relying on mathematical detail or rigor. The second is to ground these concepts in application, to show how and why they are important from a practical standpointthe book is successful on both points" - TECHNOMETRICS
