Statistics: Learning from Data, Second Edition, helps you learn to think like a statistician. It pays particular attention to areas that students often struggle with — probability, hypothesis testing, and selecting an appropriate method of analysis. Supported by learning objectives, real-data examples and exercises, and technology notes, this book helps you to develop conceptual understanding, mechanical proficiency, and the ability to put knowledge into practice.
