difficult to follow

Text fine, narrator unclear. Would like the opportunity to see graphs illustrating statistics. Still, good job.

Bout as helpful as a YouTube lecture.

I’ve listened to this three times and I’m still not getting very much out of it. They cover concepts with such quick and shallow debt it’s hard to feel you really learned anything after listening. My recommendation is to spend some time on YouTube lectures instead, which is where I’m going after finishing this review.

Oh dear me, this is BAD

I was hopeful that this would be a good review of stats for me as it had been a number of years since my last statistics course. The narration is NOT GOOD and the text is not engaging. Of my entire Audible library, this book and narration is the worst.

It really is for an absolute beginner.

Easy to listen and follow. Great beginners' introduction. It really is a book for someone who literally knows nothing of any of the basic concepts in statistics. It really is for an absolute beginner.

I really benefited to listen this audible.

Statistics seemed way too complex and demanding for me before. But this audio book finally shed some light on the concept. With clear and easy to follow explanations, using real life concepts, it was a breeze to go through the basic notions.

This audible is very well spoken for a beginner.

Definitions are critical to understanding this subject. This audio book starts out with clear definitions of the basic terms you need to know in order to make any sense of statistics. If you need to understand statistics, this is a good way to begin.
