This learning
resource is built upon the online textbook, Introductory
Statistics, available free of charge from OpenStax University.
The textbook material, itself, is provided in the PDF format. This
means
you should have a PDF reader, such as Acrobat Reader. It is
available here for downloading, free of chargetap the Acrobat
Reader image to begin the installation process.
Note: This etextbook has over
900 pages of text and images. The first time you access
this book, the downloading time might seem excessively long 
depending upon the speed of your Internet connection. Once the file
is cached in your browser, however, loading times for individual
assignments are much shorter.
