Statistics for the Utterly Confused
I am a student at Morehead State University and Business Statistics was one of the hardest course requirements until I discovered the book, Statistics for the Utterly Confused. The layout of the book was very thorough and easy to read. I truly appreciated the exercises and the examples given throughout the chapters. I really enjoyed the 'quick tips' and 'its a wrap' sections of the book because it helped me make sure I understood the key points of that particular chapter. I would advise anyone who is having a difficult time in statistics to invest in this book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Piece a cake
I like the step by step procedures with which you take (me) the utterly confused through the various stages to arrive at the final solution to your sample problems. The simplicity and the use of your language is very effective - speaks a lot -- on clarity alone I give you 100 points. Wonderful presentation and layout, I especially like the Tree diagram - GG GB BB BG; man you even included a section with 'ANSWER KEY'. I also like the tables in the Appendix - saves the student a lot of time in those calculations. And I don't even have to conduct a GOODNESS OF FIT TEST - This pass the test with flying colors. Great job, I must commend you on such a useful publication. I would recommend this book to any person who is a student in the field of statistics. It's easy to use and a great reference tool for both at home and at the office. I will definitely put this book to extensive use. Going through your book reminded me of so many things I had forgotten since my statistics class. Of course, I just glanced through the book quickly so that I can give you my VERDICT. Lloyd, congratulations on a job well done, but then you already knew that.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A 'Must Have' for anyone taking a statistics course
This book is very well written and easy to understand. I'm not very mathematically inclined and this book has helped me pass the class. As far as I'm concerned it should be used to teach the course of statistics.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
