Overview

This book contains many classic Harvard cases and offers contemporary concept development. Its low cost makes it an ideal bundle with other Duxbury titles. It is appropriate for short courses in MBA-level statistics and as a supplement in more comprehensive courses. Emphasizing the practice of data analysis, the authors teach the methodology needed to solve a variety of commonly occurring real-world problems that managers encounter daily. Readers learn how to make inferences from limited data, forecast sales in appropriate ways, and avoid potentially disastrous errors of caustic reasoning.

    Useless without data diskette

    Book is built around spreadsheets on a data diskette. Book states on pg xxiv in the section 'To the Student' 'If your instructor does not provide you with the disk, it may be obtained from...., by calling...or sending a FAX ....' Current (parent) publisher is Thomson who will not honor books written message making book useless with regard to its intent. Don't waste your time or money.
