Business Statistics: A First Course shows you the role statistics will play in your career by providing examples drawn from all functional areas of business. The text is guided by principles set forth by major stat and business science associations (ASA and DSI) while also drawing on the authors' diverse experiences.
The 8th Edition features all new examples, cases and problems. It also continues its focus on the interpretation of results, evaluation of assumptions, and discussion of next steps that lead to optimal data-based decision making. The authors feel that this approach, rather than a focus on manual calculations, will best serve you in your future career.
