Week 0:
 The book chosen for this class is
Business Statistics for Contemporary Decision Making, 4th Edition, by
Ken Black, Wiley 2004. I think this is going to be a
good book for the class. In speaking with some of my friends in the
Business Department this book comes highly recommended. Please feel free
to let me know what you think of the book as we go thought the course.
