The Second Course in Statistics is an increasingly important offering since more students are arriving at college having taken AP Statistics in high school. Mendenhall/Sincichs A Second Course in Statistics is the perfect book for courses that build on the knowledge students gain in AP Statistics, or the freshman Introductory Statistics course. A Second Course in Statistics: Regression Analysis, Seventh Edition, focuses on building linear statistical models and developing skills for implementing regression analysis in real situations. This text offers applications for engineering, sociology, psychology, science, and business. The authors use real data and scenarios extracted from news articles, journals, and actual consulting problems to show how to apply the concepts. In addition, seven case studies, now located throughout the text after applicable chapters, invite students to focus on specific problems, and are suitable for class discussion.
