This ebook, Excel 2016 for Business Statistics: A Guide to Solving Practical Problems (PDF) shows the capabilities of Microsoft Excel in teaching business statistics effectively. Similar to the previously published Excel 2010 for Business Statistics, this etextbook is a step-by-step exercise-driven guide for business students and practitioners who need to master Excel to solve practical business problems. If understanding stats isn’t your strongest suit, you are not especially mathematically-inclined, or if you are wary of computers, this is the right book for you.
Microsoft Excel, a widely available computer program for managers and students, is also an effective learning and teaching tool for quantitative analyses in business courses. Its powerful computational ability and graphical functions make learning statistics much easier than in years past. However, Excel 2016 for Business Statistics: A Guide to Solving Practical Problems is the first ebook to capitalize on these improvements by teaching managers and students how to apply Excel to statistical techniques necessary in their courses and work. Every chapter explains statistical formulas and directs the student to use Excel commands to solve easy-to-understand, specific business problems. Practice problems are provided at the end of every chapter with their solutions in an appendix. Separately, there is a full Practice Test (with answers in an Appendix) that allows students to test what they have learned.
