Great book for my Stats class5 star

My professor suggested this book as it was free and because we were broke college students. It was very well written and I would say better than a traditional textbook as it gives the reader short quizzes at the end of each chapter. This textbook should be an influence for publishers to follow. A+55

Wonderful Interactive Stats Book!5 star

We have been using the online Introduction to Statistics text for six weeks now, and I can say without hestitation that it is the best, most interactive introduction to statistics books that I have read and used to date. We are using it in our weekly statistics sessions and for home-study, and the comments have been very favorable. The videos help to reinforce the concepts, and the self-study quizzes help confirm or refute the belief of solid understand.55


Excellent for self-study5 star

I used this book extensively while I was studying to pass the statistics entrance exam for a data science course, and I found it very helpful - the chapters are short and easy to digest, with at least a couple of worked examples on each subject. The online calculators are also very useful. This wasn’t the only free online resource I used, but it was one of the best general introductions to the subject I found - highly recommended.55
