General Statistics presents a complete first course in statistics appropriate for students enrolled in a wide variety of disciplines. This mainstream, mid-level text offers non majors, in as precise and accurate manner as possible, the basic ideas of descriptive and inferential statistics. The new Fourth Edition retains many of the features and coverage that made the previous editions so successful, while incorporating additional real data sets, better, updated exercises that enhance students' decision-making skills, and more computer spreadsheet output for illustrating statistical concepts and ideas. This text is appropriate for any one-semester, introductory statistics course at both four year and junior colleges.
