Student Testimonials (Fall 2012- with WebAssign)
"The textbook was great! It kept me focused and gave me a space to keep all my homework together. I would have failed this class without this book."
"The workbook was WAY better than a conventional text."
"The workbook does a good job of teaching the material and provides the opportunity to learn the material by immediately doing it."
"The text was much more useful than most textbooks. The fact that it could be used in class and at home worked well. Webassign was great. The fact that you could ‘practice another problem’ and see how to solve it was very helpful for me."
"I loved the textbook! It is the first one that I have ever really used and the format made it easier to stay organized as well as understand the material."
"The textbook really helps a lot because it includes notes, examples, and problems so that I can apply the notes immediately to solve problems. It helped me follow along and keep everything organized."
"I especially liked how we would go over an example and then immediately do a problem ourselves. WebAssign helped solidify the concepts and prepare for the exams. I really liked the option to ‘Practice Another Version’."
"The combination of the textbook and WebAssign was great. It made taking a math course less stressful than usual. I would even consider taking a second course in statistics now."
"I have never had a textbook that was also a workbook. It is a great way to learn and WebAssign is the best online homework website I have used."
Student Testimonials (Spring 2012- with WebAssign)
“The follow-along textbook is fantastic and really helps visual learners like me. Using WebAssign is also good, it makes it easy to try another problem and learn from that. “
“The book is great. It helped me keep track of my work better and isn’t as overwhelming as a regular math textbook. Also, it costs about a fourth of the price, which is nice. “
“The best part about the online homework is the fact that it tells you if you got the problem wrong, allows you to ‘try another version’, and gives you 5 tries to get it right. The textbook is easy to understand and easy to go through.”
“[The] textbook was very helpful. I had all of the needed formulas and examples to help me solve the homework problems. Also, WebAssign is a great tool to gauge students understanding of the material.“
“I liked the online homework. I had a better experience with WebAssign that I have had with other programs. The book was well done and helped me in a variety of ways.”
“The textbook was very helpful. It was one of the best textbooks I have seen. I took AP Stats in high school and could not understand any of the information but when you taught it, I was able to understand it. I like the WebAssign online homework because if I did not know something I could try another version and learn from my mistakes. “
“The textbook made learning the material a lot easier for me. There weren’t unnecessary long paragraphs full of explanations that would just end up making me more confused in the end. I like WebAssign because if I didn’t understand how to do a problem, I could always see another version. “
