When Moore and McCabe's Introduction to the Practice of Statistic (IPS) became the #1 book in the market about 5 years ago, statistics instructors realized that a shorter, lower-level, less detailed book based on IPS would also succeed. Hence, David Moore envisioned The Basic Practice of Statistics (BPS)—a text that applies the data analysis approach of IPS but is targeted for a one-term course only. BPS has now become the book to beat, being an ideal match for more schools than any other book in the market.
The second edition of The Basic Practice of Statistics builds on the strengths of the first: a balanced and modern approach to data analysis, data production, and inference; and an emphasis on clear explanations of ideas rather than formal mathematics or reliance on recipes. Moore's use of real world data and examples and his emphasis on statistical thinking show students how statistics can be used as a powerful tool for understanding the world we live in. Designed for students with a limited background in mathematics, The Basic Practice of Statistics 2/e is the ideal way to introduce the core concepts of statistics to the students of today and tomorrow.
