Editorial Reviews

Ryan, president of the Minitab company, and Joiner update their textbook on the statistics software package to incorporate the features of releases 12 and 13. They designed it as a supplementary text for a first or second course in statistics either before or after calculus, and emphasize such applications as using plots creatively, applying standard methods to real data, and exploring data in depth. No dates are mentioned for earlier editions. There is no bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
