I am sorry to say that its price ($250!) has surprised me but this is the best text I’ve seen so far. I’ve checked with the author and the publisher, they suggested e-book as an alternative ($150?) or rental by e-chapter. One student has found the international edition online for $50! 2) Calculator capable of calculating means ( X ) and standard deviations (S and σ, some calculators show these as σ n-1 and σ n respectively). If your calculator also estimates the intercept (a) and slope (b) in y = a + bX and the correlation coefficient (r) (in simple linear regression) it is much better. DO NOT INVEST TOO MUCH IN ANY FANCY CALCULATOR. Statistical software:
