Let’s Get Started: Big Things to Know First. This unit sets the context for explaining what statistics is (not what students may think!) while ensuring that all students share an understanding of the forces that make learning business statistics critically important today. Especially designed for instructors teaching with course management tools, including those teaching hybrid or online courses, “Let’s Get Started” has been developed to be posted online or otherwise distributed before the first class section begins and is available from the download page for this book that is discussed in Appendix Section C.1.

Complete Microsoft Windows and OS X Excel-Based Solutions for Learning Business Statistics—Expanding on the contents of previous editions, this book features revised Excel Guides that address differences in current versions and features a new version of PHStat, the Pearson Education statistics add-in, that is simpler to set up and is compatible with both Microsoft Windows and OS X versions of Microsoft Excel. Using PHStat or the expanded set of Excel Guide workbooks that serve as models and templates for solutions gives students two distinct ways of incorporating Excel in their study of statistics. (See Section EG.2 in the Excel Guide for “Let’s Get Started: Big Things to Know First” for complete details.)
