Donnelly teaches management at Goldey-Beacom College, a private business institution in Wilmington, Delaware. Recalling his own experience years ago as a frustrated graduate student in an incomprehensible advanced theoretical statistics class, he was inspired to create a text to make statistics more easily accessible to today's students. Coverage includes the basics of data, measurement scales, and calculating descriptive statistics; probability topics; and inferential statistics. The second edition features expanded converage of variance analysis, additional example problems and solutions throughout the text, and a handy tear-out quick reference to often-used formulas.

It's a really good book aside from what I think might be a few typos.The writer ussually uses examples that have personally happened to him.I like the clear way things are explained in this book. There are also parts that show you how to do statistics on a computer. Personally what might have interfered with my understanding of the material is my lack of knowledge on poker and gold,examples of which are brought up a few times.It does a really good job all the way to the very end of explaining things and making it easy to comprehend.In my opinion the last chapter on correlation and regression actually seemed a bit easier then the few before on hypothesis testing.
