In Statistics for Business: Decision Making and Analysis, authors Robert Stine and Dean Foster, from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, take a sophisticated approach to teaching statistics in the context of making good business decisions. The authors show you how to recognize and understand each business question, use statistical tools to do the analysis, and how to communicate their results clearly and concisely. In addition to providing cases and real data to demonstrate real business situations, this text provides resources to support understanding and engagement. A successful problem-solving framework in the 4-M Examples (Motivation, Method, Mechanics, Message) model a clear outline for solving problems, 30 new What Do You Think questions included throughout the chapters give you an opportunity to stop and check your understanding as you read, and now learning objectives are introduced to guide you through each chapter and help you to review major goals. Software Hints provide instructions for using the most up-to-date technology packages, and the Second Edition includes expanded coverage and instruction of Excel® 2010 and the XLSTAT™ add-in. MyStatLab course management system includes increased exercise coverage with the Second Edition, along with 100% of the You Do It exercises and a library of 1,000 Conceptual Questions that require you to apply your statistical understanding to conceptual business questions. Business Insight Videos show you how statistical methods are used by real businesses, and new StatTalk Videos present statistical concepts through a series of fun, brief, real-world examples. Technology tutorial videos at the exercise level support software use.
