Looking to learn how to build data analytics models or discover the relationships between variables?
In the Statistics for Data Analytics zyBook, you will learn statistics with a focus on regression analysis using R and develop an understanding of the relationships between data, regression model building, and model selection.
Research Proven Excellence
80% of surveyed students preferred zyBooks over regular textbooks.
Studies show that students learn 118% more with the minimal text model in only one lesson.
On average, zyBook users improved grades up to ⅔ and read 74% more than users of regular textbooks.
What is a zyBook?
In short, zyBooks are interactive, digital textbooks.
By incorporating available technology, zyBooks make learning fun, interactive and engaging – all while drastically reducing the time spent on learning theoretical concepts.
The Statistics for Data Analytics zyBook covers statistical concepts needed for data analytics (specifically, regression analysis) with minimal text, maximum interactivity.
