Key features

The study guide has been updated to match the changes in the main text. This includes:
  • reducing and simplifying problems related to linear regression;
  • updating examples and data in the problems themselves;
  • adding problems on box plots; and
  • simplifying hand calculation problems with more problems focusing on underlying understanding and concepts of statistics.


Each module includes:

the learning objectives and a summary of the matching module in the main text;

  • computational exercises focusing on equations and calculations;
  • true or false questions focusing on core concepts;
  • short answer questions focusing on in-depth concepts; and
  • multiple choice questions at a variety of levels.

Module quizzes mimic chapter tests to offer students practice for exams.
