MyStatLab provides users with countless opportunities to practice, plus statistics-specific resources and tools that enhance students’ experience and comprehension.
Berenson’s fresh, conversational writing style and streamlined design helps students with their comprehension of the concepts and creates a thoroughly readable learning experience. Basic Business Statistics emphasises the use of statistics to analyse and interpret data and assumes that computer software is an integral part of this analysis.
Berenson’s ‘real world’ business focus takes students beyond the pure theory by relating statistical concepts to functional areas of business with real people working in real business environments, using statistics to tackle real business challenges.
