ANALYTICS: DATA ANALYSIS AND DECISION MAKING, 6E! This popular quantitative methods text helps you maximize your success with its proven teach-by-example approach, student-friendly writing style, and complete Excel 2016 integration. (It is also compatible with Excel 2013, 2010, and 2007.) The text devotes three online chapters to advanced statistical analysis. Chapters on data mining and importing data into Excel emphasize tools commonly used under the Business Analytics umbrella -- including Microsoft Excel's "Power BI" suite. Up-to-date problem sets and cases demonstrate how chapter concepts relate to real-world practice. In addition, the Companion Website includes data and solutions files, PowerPoint slides, SolverTable for sensitivity analysis, and the Palisade DecisionTools Suite (@RISK, BigPicture, StatTools, PrecisionTree, TopRank, RISKOptimizer, NeuralTools, and Evolver).
