Donnelly teaches management at Goldey-Beacom College, a private business institution in Wilmington, Delaware. Recalling his own experience years ago as a frustrated graduate student in an incomprehensible advanced theoretical statistics class, he was inspired to create a text to make statistics more easily accessible to today's students. Coverage includes the basics of data, measurement scales, and calculating descriptive statistics; probability topics; and inferential statistics. The second edition features expanded converage of variance analysis, additional example problems and solutions throughout the text, and a handy tear-out quick reference to often-used formulas.
