This text is appropriate for university business students taking an intro-level statistics course.

Statistics for Managers using Microsoft Excel relies on real and realistic Canadian data to illustrate the application of statistics in a Canadian business environment. It focuses on the areas most useful for students of business. Each statistical topic is presented in an applied context related to at least one of the functional areas of business - making this book the most directly useful text available today.
Simple, easy to use Excel instructions are conveniently located after each statistics topic. Excel output has been directly incorporated into the examples, and detailed instructions for implementing worksheet solutions are presented in Excel Handbook sections. The focus throughout is to emphasize data analysis and output while reducing emphasis on doing computations. Most of these examples are accompanied by clear screenshots of the excel spreadsheet for increased accuracy and understanding.
