This established and popular text is regarded as one of the clearest and most comprehensive in its field. David Eadson has joined Jon Curwin and Roger Slater in the author team, and together they have sought to offer a more compact book with all the qualities of the previous six editions, whilst strengthening the links to online support materials. The new edition has been enhanced to reflect the latest learning plans and techniques, providing students with all the tools they need to pass the typical Quantitative Methods course. Each chapter focuses on a selection of statistical techniques, illustrated with examples from across business, marketing, economics, finance, and public administration, to appeal to students across the business spectrum. Whilst all core material is covered in the book itself, the online offering has been bolstered to include Parts 6-8 covering ‘Modelling’, ‘Mathematical Topics’ and ‘Student Guides’ respectively, in addition to a wide range of other resources including datasets and extra learning tools. Visual signposts throughout the text guide the student to the online platform to provide a seamless interaction between the two thus providing a multi-faceted learning experience. The wide-ranging coverage provided makes this the ideal text for the teaching of quantitative methods across all business disciplines at undergraduate, MBA, and post-experience levels. This textbook is autopackaged with CourseMate. CourseMate brings course concepts to life with interactive learning, study, and exam preparation tools that support the printed textbook and the textbook-specific website.
