Statistics Book Recomendation

  1. Mar 4, 2008 #1
    Can anyone recomend a good book for first year statistics. I'm taking a business stat course and the book for it has absolutely no depth to it. Nothing is derived or really explained from a mathmatical standpoint. This is one of those classes where you just do a bunch of plug and chug without really getting an intuitive feel for the material. Any suggestions?

    I like "Applied Statistics and Probability for Engineers" by Douglas C. Montgomery and George C. Runger. However, I haven't actually studied out of any others (except Shaums Outlines' "Statistics" by Murray Spiegal and Larry Stephens) so my opinion probably isn't the best to consider.
