Business Statistics Using Excel (Paperback)

Glyn Davis, Branko Pecar


Business Statistics Using Excel provides students with the tools they need to confidently approach their course, using screenshots to integrate Excel effectively throughout the text. Each chapter is packed with exercises to engage students and encourage self testing. The authors provide various pedagogical features to show how statistics are used in the real world, including numerous examples throughout, and running "techniques in practice" exercises at the end of each chapter. The book also contains chapters on how to use Excel and a maths refresher, as well as hosting a numerical skills revision chapter online, all of which help to reinforce students' confidence in their mathematical ability, even if they feel they have forgotten what they have previously learnt.

The text is based around a typical one semester business statistics course, thus ensuring that the content maps well to the modules. It is also accompanied by an extensive Online Resource Centre providing a wealth of self-test questions for students, and a test bank for lecturers.
