Most math and science study guides are a reflection of the college professors who write them-dry, difficult, and pretentious. The Humongous Book of Statistics Problems is the exception. Following the footsteps of the successful The Humongous Books of Calculus Problems, bestselling author Mike Kelley has taken what appears to be a typical statistics workbook, chock full of solved problems, and made notes in the margins adding missing steps and simplifying concepts and solutions so that what would be baffling to students is made perfectly clear. No longer will befuddled students wonder where a particular answer came from or have to rely on trial and error to solve problems. And by learning how to interpret and solve problems as they are typically presented in statistics courses, students become fully prepared to solve those difficult, obscure problems that were never discussed in class but always seem to find their way onto exams.--Over 1000 problems.-Step by step solutions-Annotated notes. W. Michael Kelley is a former award-winning math teacher and the author of seven math books, including five from Alpha-The Humongous Book of Calculus Problems, The Humongous Book of Algebra Problems, The Complete Idiot's Guider to Calculus, Second Edition, The Complete Idiot's Guider to Precalculus, and The Complete Idiot's Guider to Algebra, Second Edition. Mr. Kelley is praised for his ability to make intimidating math topics very approachable, even humorous. His dedication to helping students and adults alike conquer their fear of numbers is exemplified by the many honors he has received throughout his career, including an award from the Maryland Council of Teachers of Mathematics recognizing him as an Outstanding High School Mathematics Teacher and a four-year running title as 'Most Popular Teacher' in his home school. But perhaps the most significant credit to Mr. Kelley's talent is his record of achievement. After taking over the Advanced Placement Calculus program, enrollment increased by 350%, and the number of students receiving credit by passing the standardized Advanced Placement test increased by 1200%! Mr. Kelley is also the founder and editor of calculus-help.com, which helps thousands of students every month conquer their math anxiety.
