Applied Statistical Inference presents a step-by-step approach to working out mathematical problems, illustrating the techniques and methods of applied inferences using the statistical software package Minitab(R). Requiring only basic knowledge of statistics and intermediate knowledge of algebra, the text provides a fundamental understanding of applied statistics, which serves as a foundation for studying more advanced topics. Intended for a second course in applied statistics, this comprehensive undergraduate textbook contains a solutions manual as well as reference datasets on an accompanying CD-ROM and for download on the web.
