Textbook Requirements

The required textbook for the course is Stats: Data and Models (4th edition) by De Veaux, Velleman, and Bock. The bookstore will be selling both ordinary hardback copies of the textbook and binder-ready copies, which will be available at a lower price. Either version will be fine.

All versions of the book (in the bookstore) come bundled with MyStatLab. This is required for the course, since we will be using it to complete online homework assignments. Electronic access to the textbook comes with MyStatLab, so you can register for MyStatLab without buying the book if you want electronic access to the book only. To register, go to MyStatLab and register using the course ID (bowers58317).

(You must use your UCSD email in order to receive credit for the online homework.)
