Statistics For Dummies by Deborah J. Rumsey | Waterstones
I just can't force myself to click on any stars that might indicate that I appreciated this book in any way other than a purely scientific one. That being said..
I highly recommend this book for beginners. I tried many intro statistics books and ended up quitting after reading the first few chapters. This book introduces statistics in a very intuitive and structured way.
There is very little math in the book but it did a good job explaining why some concepts are needed. An example is the Central Limit Theory. I took a statistical inference I highly recommend this book for beginners. I took a statistical inference course in my graduate study but didn't understand this CLT. Things really start to make sense when I read this book.

Jan 07, Hui Goh rated it it was amazing. This is great if you are new to statistics, and need concepts explained in lay terms. May 15, Matt Mayevsky rated it really liked it Shelves: formal-sciences.

Book's Professor Rumsey is the right door, to the right place. Jun 09, Alan added it Shelves: epub. Aug 25, Cosma Catalin rated it really liked it. A good book to introduce you in the "life" of statistics but also you first steps to deal with your future research.
Overall a good book but with a lot of math at one point, for a doctor it can be overwhelming : It can be updated in the future to present the current software that can help you to calculate fast correlations and statistics. Sep 17, Bryan Tanner rated it really liked it Shelves: professional. Very accessible. I read it in 2 sittings.

Amazing review from Stats 1. Used some real world examples that I hadn't thought of before. If your were to teach kids about how to sample a population, have one student come up and pretend to be a gourmet chef and demonstrate for the class how to test if the soup is good. This book features new content so that you can learn the most up to date information. It teaches you how to analyse data and determine probability.
