Math 151, Elementary Statistics

Some links and information for general use

Required text:   The Basic Practice of Statistics , by David S. Moore. 
w/Student CD. Fifth Edition ©2009.  WH Freeman, publisher
   (It has Jigsaw puzzle pieces on white background on the cover--caution--NOT M&M's.  There is a 6th edition out now--be careful, don't get that.)
This book ought to be out of print; officially displaced by the 6th edition. But Freeman appears to still be selling new ones.  There is a very big market of used ones, from very cheap, with no disadvantage to you.   A copy of the book is on reserve, and another in the Math Clinic. 

Hardback (with CD):
   ISBN-10: 1-4292-2426-6      ISBN-13: 978-1-4292-2426-0   New is:  "Our retail price to students: $155.95"
Paperback (with CD):

     ISBN-13: 978-1-4292-2425-3. New is:  "Our Retail Price to students: $135.95"

If buying used, don't worry about the CD; it's not required. WHFreeman had different ISBN numbers for the (possibly) CD-less versions, and they might show up on the used market:
