Statistics DeMYSTiFieD 2nd ED

Book Reviews: This book is for people who want to learn or review the basic concepts and definitions in statistics and probability at the high-school level. It can serve as a supplemental text in a classroom, tutored, or home-schooling environment. It should be useful for career changers who need to refresh their knowledge. The author recommend that you start at the beginning of this book and go straight through.

Many students have a hard time with statistics. This is a preparatory text that can get you ready for a standard course in statistics. If you’ve had trouble with other statistics books because they’re too difficult, or because you find yourself performing calculations without any idea of what you’re really doing, this book should help you.

This book contains numerous practice quiz, test, and exam questions. They resemble the sorts of questions found in standardized tests. There is a short quiz at the end of every chapter. The quizzes are ‘‘open-book.’’ You may (and should) refer to the chapter texts when taking them. When you think you’re ready, take the quiz, write down your answers, and then give your list of answers to a friend. Have the friend tell you your score, but not which questions you got wrong. The answers are listed in the back of the book. Stick with a chapter until you get most of the answers correct.

This book is divided into two multi-chapter parts, followed by part tests. Take these tests when you’re done with the respective parts and have taken all the chapter quizzes. The part tests are ‘‘closed-book,’’ but the questions are easier than those in the quizzes. A satisfactory score is 75% or more correct. Again, answers are in the back of the book.

There is a final exam at the end of this course. It contains questions drawn uniformly from all the chapters in the book. Take it when you have finished both parts, both part tests, and all of the chapter quizzes. A satisfactory score is at least 75% correct answers. With the part tests and the final exam, as with the quizzes, have a friend tell you your score without letting you know which questions you missed. That way, you will not subconsciously memorize the answers. You can check to see where your knowledge is strong and where it is not.

The author recommend that you complete one chapter every couple of weeks. An hour or two daily ought to be enough time for this. When you’re done with the course, you can use this book, with its comprehensive index, as a perma- nent reference.

Suggestions for future editions are welcome.

Selected Reviews:

Great book. Can be overwhelming if not taken in bite sized pieces. The author recommends a certain pace and I agree with his recommendation.
