When I evaluate a textbook there are different standards that you have to follow due to the intention of the authors being different than it would be for a novel or a work of nonfiction.
The first thing to consider is whether or not the book is useful. The difficulty of the book comes second. Elementary Statistics is a textbook written by Allan G Bluman.
The book takes a step-by-step approach which is what a math textbook should do. It assumes a basic understanding of Algebra and explains all of the symbols it uses. In the text, we also find how to arrange the symbols to find out various points of interest from data. The book supplements the text with information on how to use Minitab, a TI Calculator, or a Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet to solve the problems.
Initially, the text begins with the most basic aspects of Statistics. It talks about data, how to graph data, how to tell a good graph from a bad graph, and how to take the three different kinds of average. All the while, the book breaks down the steps and clearly explains them.
The book is packed with examples and workable problems to solve. It even has little tidbits of trivia in the margins and historical notes along with that. So in short, I liked this textbook. The only issue is that the book is old; I managed to find the fifth edition, which came out in The only other thing with the book is that the offer from the publisher for an online experience is probably defunct.
Feb 04, Christopher rated it liked it. If you have hair and want to lose it violently, read this book. Also good for sadists. Math people too I suppose. An okay textbook. Extremely confusing at times, should be clarified in a future edition but knowing textbook companies it'll be even more vague in the future. May 29, Randie D.
Camp, M. The practice exercises were helpful but the actual content was not presented in a friendly manner. The CD that came with the book wasn't as helpful as the book suggests.

To start with the positive: 1 From this book, I learned for long enough to be quizzed and take exams how some basic statistics are calculated. Now for the not so great: 1 I may have felt more comfortable with the material in a long term way if I had found the time to watch Oh my bleeding heck. Now for the not so great: 1 I may have felt more comfortable with the material in a long term way if I had found the time to watch the hours and hours of lectures the instructor has on YouTube explaining what the book fails to really explain but I feel like the text should be able to give me everything I need to master a subject.
In this it failed. The number of errors it contained--in computation, grammar, punctuation, omitted words and symbols--was truly appalling for any published work, much less one that has been through 10 iterations.
I'm used to an error here and there in any book, textbook or otherwise, but this was several times a chapter and sometimes per page. Jan 16, Mel added it. This book was used for my Introduction to Statistics class 8th edition though. I didn't really use it for my course work so I didn't actually read it past chapter 2 or 3. The little side notes were enjoyable with historical and application tid-bits. It provided walkthroughs and offered a variety of practice problems with instant feedback. In hindsight I probably could have skipped the book and just bought the This book was used for my Introduction to Statistics class 8th edition though.
In hindsight I probably could have skipped the book and just bought the online subscription. Actually, a really good step by step approach to Elementary Statistics. There is no guessing or confusion. Extremely straight forward. A bit repetitive without explanation as to why you're seemingly doing the same thing twice.
This book would be good for even independent study, but to fully understand statistics, a good teacher goes a long way. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Aug 06, Mandy rated it did not like it Shelves: textbook.
I thought that would mean it was all laid out and easy to follow. You have to be a math wiz to understand the book after chapter 2. Although required for stats class, it was well written with plenty of examples for the math inept like me. Feb 16, Bob Prophet rated it liked it.
Not a very user-friendly guide for students learning about statistics.
