CHOICE Review

Lomax (Univ. of Alabama), author of this conceptual work, uses a straightforward, streamlined approach to teaching this often-hated subject. His user-friendly book includes coverage of many of the important topics in descriptive as well as inferential statistics but lacks coverage of the binomial, Poisson, hypergeometric, exponential, and uniform probability distributions. It does, however, include some topics not normally covered, such as skewness and kurtosis measures, homogeneity of variance tests, multiple comparison procedures, significance tests in multiple linear regression, and discussion of assumptions and their violations. Each of the 18 chapters begins with a chapter outline and a list of the key concepts, and ends with a set of conceptual as well as computational problems. There are numerous tables included as well as a very extensive bibliography. Only a rudimentary knowledge of algebra is required. Recommended. Undergraduates through professionals. D. J. Gougeon; University of Scranton
