Berenson shows readers how statistics is used in each functional area of business.
Basic Business Statistics shows the relevance of statistics by familiarizing readers with the statistical applications used in the business world, providing clear instructions for using statistical applications, and offering ample opportunities for practice.
The twelfth edition has built on the application emphasis and provides enhanced coverage of statistics.
First off, I've never written a review on anything before. That's how bad this textbook is... It's so awful I felt compelled to write a review on it.
It's hard to follow. Things are rarely explained fully, and the explanations given are confusing. There are answers to the even problems in the back of the book but it doesn't help... in other textbooks, generally, there will be AT LEAST one even problem and one odd problem that are very similar in a particular unit. Then, if the teacher is assigning odd problems and a student is stuck on one, they can work the the similar even problem and check their work to know if they're doing it correctly. With this book I often find myself stuck on an assigned odd problem, and there is no similar even problem to help me with it.
I've taken other statistics courses and used other books. This one is really, really awful. I hope that teachers and professors decide against using this book... and if anyone is stuck needing it for a course....good luck.
