I really love it because I also think that "practice makes perfect" all of the exercises are amazing and alot of thinking and working out is included. I think it's wonderful😀. It's exactly what I do at school and I am not much of a maths person😕 so it really helps me alot😘
This book was recommended as a supplement to the basic (and completely useless) text assigned for a course on statistics that I just endured. While Regression Basics is not a huge book, the examples are presented well and it does a amazing job explaining the concepts it covers. Had this book been used as the basic text my course, I would have been much happier. In rating this book, I hesitated between giving it 3 or 4 stars: I decided that 3 stars is sufficient - while the book does do a amazing job of explaining some things, I still had to refer to other sources to gain a full understanding of the material.
Regression Basics by Leo Kahane is a well written introduction to regression anlysis. The book is simple to read and can be used by any student or researcher who has successfully completed an introductory statistics course. I found the four examples referred to throughout the book diverse and entertaining. I especially like the chapter explaining model performance and evaluation which describes the regression statistics given by most statistics software. The book is ideal for say a 1-credit independent study course, a supplement for a course in Regression and Correlation, or perhaps a supplement for a Statistical Methods course. Another plus is that the book includes exercises and the data sets used in the examples are also given in the appendix.
This book is a MUST HAVE for someone who knows essentially nothing about SPSS. It has super clear examples, step by step directions, and the author contains pictures to present what each step looks like. I'm SUPER satisfied I got this book; it's helped my Stats grade out a lot! :)
The book was very straightforward about the dangers and risks involved with the skateboarding procedure. Both pertaining to yourself and how to respect other skaters at the skatepark. The mechanics, I believe, were very difficult to grasp as a reader, knowing that you need experience where you practice to truly learn. The truth about safety was evident, you'd better practice alot, I have for 20 years just to ollie while moving, and use your mind and have fun other skaters too. I have yet to read Per Welinder's alternative book.
I bought this book as a supplement to my basic Econometrics text book latest semester, and I'm glad it was just a supplement. Very brief and rather dry, this book lays out the basics of the discipline, but does it entirely too quickly for a beginner. For a more advanced Econometrics student it may be enough, and it will certainly be a useful resource to check back on as my studies progress; I just [email protected]#$%! had been more thorough for my current purposes.
While I search this book very helpful in some respects, it is also painfully detailed in it's instructions. It's a fast read and it's usually beautiful simple to search what you're looking for. I would probably only recommend this book to people who have NO prior knowledge of SPSS since it is SO basic.
The book was in amazing condition, almost never used and it arrived sooner than I expected. As an intermediate Financial analyst, this book is of amazing help. it breaks down the basics of regression just like its Title. Thanks to the author and the seller of this awesome book.
This is very helpful! This is very helpful for success in my Elementary Algebra class that I am taking at school this semester. The only thing I'd like to see and practice more of is the use of fractions within linear equations. That is what I struggle with the most. Thanks.
Would have given the more stars because the content is very helpful but some of the ads are highly inappropriate. I downloaded this just for fun because I love algebra. In the middle of studying with my 11 year old daughter, an ad of a social media application comes up with a girl shaking [email protected]#$% in the camera with booty shorts on. Then it wouldnt allow you close the ad for a least 5 seconds! Are you trying to teach children algebra or trying to recruit them to the stripper pole!? Developers should not let ads from just any company (especially if the ad is completely unrelated to the app) just to create a fast buck off an ad. Screen your ads better... Uninstalled!
Would have given it a higher rating, if not for the ads, which also overrode my audio being turned off, and did at high volume, waking up my wife in the middle of the night, while I was using the program. Cannot use like this - and very inconsiderate programming.
Like the application and would rate it higher except that it crashes when you finish a try and the practice questions. Also, doesn't provide the best feedback to practice answers (right/wrong) or to the review (like in the "find the variables" pic bove). Fix the crashing, provide better feedback and have it verify the practice answers. Do that and you'll have 5 stars in my book. :)
Was an 'optional' text book for a statistics class. It seemed so expensive, but I am glad that I ordered it because it is worth it. It walked me thru the SPSS program much better than the needed text. I would recommend it to others that are just starting out in statistics and are unfamiliar with SPSS.
