The Basic Practice of Statistics has become a bestselling textbook by focusing on how statistics are gathered, analyzed, and applied to real problems and situations—and by confronting student anxieties about the course's relevance and difficulties head on. With David Moore's pioneering "data analysis" approach (emphasizing statistical thinking over computation), engaging narrative and case studies, current problems and exercises, and an accessible level of mathematics, there is no more effective textbook for showing students what working statisticians do and what accurate interpretations of data can reveal about the world we live in. In the new edition, you will once again see how everything fits together. As always, Moore's text offers balanced content, beginning with data analysis, then covering probability and inference in the context of statistics as a whole. It provides a wealth of opportunities for students to work with data from a wide range of disciplines and real-world settings, emphasizing the big ideas of statistics in the context of learning specific skills used by professional statisticians. Thoroughly updated throughout, the new edition offers new content, features, cases, data sources, and exercises, plus new media support for instructors and students—including the latest version of the widely-adopted StatsPortal. The full picture of the contemporary practice of statistics has never been so captivatingly presented to an uninitiated audience.

David Moore’s data analysis (conceptual) approach, which revolutionized the introductory statistics textbook, moves students away from formulas and number-crunching, focusing instead on how working statisticians in a variety of fields collect and analyze data, and use the results to tackle real-world problems. The clear, direct way of emphasizing the course’s relevance and confronting students’ math anxieties is at the heart of the bestselling The Basic Practice of Statistics (BPS). It is also the ideal approach for taking full advantage of the powerful statistical tools and interactive learning features in this new edition’s text/media package. Now more than ever, BPS is ready to help students move from reading about statistical practice to practicing statistics themselves.

When The College Board created the Advanced Placement (AP) statistics course several years ago, they recommended several college books that closely match their syllabus. The top two books on this "short list" were Moore and McCabe's Introduction to the Practice of Statistics and Moore's The Basic Practice of Statistics. Still, these book lacked several key elements such as activities and special topics. So, starting with the classic features of IPS and BPS, veteran AP statistics instructor Dan Yates has fashioned a text that perfectly matches the College Board’s recommended syllabus. The result is the #1 book in the AP statistics market: The Practice of Statistics, TI-83 Graphing Calculator Enhanced. Because this book was written for bright high school students who are at an advanced reading level, it has also sold to many colleges and universities. These institutions love the idea of a David Moore book integrating the TI-83 Graphing Calculator, which is the most popular statistics calculator in the market. For colleges and universities who require or recommend that their students use the TI-83 Graphing Calculator, TPS is the appropriate text.
