    • USE OF CUMULATIVE STANDARD NORMAL DISTRIBUTION TABLE PREPARES STUDENTS TO WORK WITH STATISTICAL SOFTWARE. To more effectively prepare students to readily use computer software in statistics, the text incorporates a normal probability table consistent with today’s statistical software. This cumulative normal probability table also makes it easier to compute p-values for hypothesis testing.
    • TRUSTED TEAM OF DISTINGUISHED AUTHORS ENSURES THE MOST ACCURATE, PROVEN PRESENTATION. Prominent leaders and active consultants in business and statistics, authors David R. Anderson, Dennis J. Sweeney, Thomas A. Williams, Jeffrey D. Camm, and James J. Cochran deliver an accurate, real-world presentation of statistical concepts you can trust with every edition.
    • LEADING PROBLEM-SCENARIO APPROACH HELPS STUDENTS EASILY UNDERSTAND AND APPLY CONCEPTS. A hallmark strength of this text is its unique approach that ensures students fully comprehend statistical techniques within an applications setting. The statistical results provide insights into business decisions and detail how statistics are used within real-world practice to solve problems.
    • SYSTEMATIC APPROACH EMPHASIZES PROVEN METHODS AND APPLICATIONS. Students first develop a computational foundation and thoroughly learn the use of techniques before moving to statistical application and interpretation of the value of techniques. Methods Exercises at the end of each section stress computation and use of formulas, while Application Exercises require students to apply what they know about statistics to real-world problems.
    • REVISED APPROACH TO CALCULATING PERCENTILES. Chapter 3, Descriptive Statistics: Numerical Measures, now uses the approach recommended by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and also used by a wide variety of software. In addition, the NIST-recommended approach for calculating percentiles is integrated throughout the textbook wherever percentiles are used (for example, when creating a box plot or when calculating quantiles or an interquartile range).
    • MINDTAP® PROVIDES STUDENTS WITH TOOLS FOR BETTER TIME MANAGEMENT. Students can complete assignments whenever and wherever they are ready to learn with course material specially customized by you and streamlined in one proven, easy-to-use interface. MindTap® gives students a roadmap to master decision-making in business statistics. Its vast array of resources, tools, and apps -- including all new Excel Online activities powered by Microsoft, new Exploring Statistics interactive visualizations, problem-solving videos, animated examples and practice opportunities, Interpreting the Results assignments note taking, and flashcards -- ensures learners have everything they need to maximize course success.
    • UPDATED APPENDICES INCLUDE THE LATEST SOFTWARE. All step-by-step instructions in the software appendices and all textbook figures featuring software output have been updated to reflect Excel 2013 and Minitab 17. This equips students with exposure to and hands-on experience with the current versions of two of the most commonly used software for statistical analysis in business.
    • Unparalleled Software Options. Bundle options in support of popular statistics software packages are now available that include the latest versions of Minitab 17 and Minitab Express (Minitab Express is a new introductory statistics package that supports Mac computers), JMP, and SPSS. ‘Tip Sheets’ offer resources that include step-by-step instructions with screenshots that walk students through the software. The text DATAfiles are available in .csv format for easy import into these popular software packages. Contact your Cengage representative for ordering information!
    • TWO ALL-NEW CASE PROBLEMS. A new probability modeling case has been added to Chapter 5, while a new simple linear regression case appears in Chapter 14. The 33 case problems in this book provide students the opportunity to put what they’ve learned into action by working on more complex problems, analyzing larger data sets, and preparing managerial reports based on the results of their analyses.v
    • NEW EXAMPLES BASED ON REAL DATA. Bringing statistical concepts to life, more than 180 new examples and exercises reflect real data and referenced sources. Data from sources used by THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, USA TODAY, BARRON’S, and others draw from actual studies and applications to develop explanations and create exercises that demonstrate the many uses of statistics in business and economics. The 13th edition contains upwards of 350 examples and exercises based on real data.
