Statistical Analysis by Kachigan

  • Feb 5, 2001
This book has an excellent treatment of the various statistical methodologies. It has an easy-to-read treatment of basic probability with a gradual introduction into conditional prob. The coverage of mean, variance, weighted mean and the standard deviation is good. I was impressed with the explanation of the z statistic and hypothesis testing. The author had a good rendition of regression and correlation in single, as well as, multiple models. The style of this work is a belles lettres

treatment-almost akin to reading a story. Despite the simplicity, there is enough complexity for the quantitatively oriented readers. I would like to see an update of this book with some cross-referencing to the internet and more modern terminology. Despite the fact that it is an older work, there are few books which explain the material with the clarity of this text. Its weaknesses may be overcome by utilizing the REA Statistics or the Schaum's outline. This book is excellent for students who find math hard to comprehend. It serves all levels of students from the most advanced to the students requiring more time with the material.
