Eliminate the intimidation factor from learning statistics for business

Robert Donnelly’s Business Statistics was written in a conversational tone designed to reduce the level of anxiety that many business students experience when taking a statistics course. The 3rd Edition maintains the author’s successful and straightforward approach that explains each concept and why it’s important, directly to students. Through an abundance of comments in the margins that clarify specific topics, a variety of applications, and Your Turn practice opportunities in each chapter, students see business statistics in action -- both in the classroom and the world around them.
