The Guide to Minitab includes both a Getting Started with Minitab section and hands-on, self-paced Tutorials designed to teach students how to use the software capabilities through a variety of approaches. The Tutorials cover all of the primary features and capabilities of MINITAB, including graphical and numerical methods for one and two or more variables, bivariate analysis, total quality management tools, time series analysis, and taking data from the web, to name a few. MINITAB is included on the CD in the back of the guide and is an easy-to-use general-purpose statistical computing package for analyzing data. It is a flexible and powerful tool that was designed from the beginning to be used by students and researchers new to statistics. It is now one of the most widely used statistics packages in the world. Minitab performs horribly tedious computations and produces accurate and professional quality graphs almost instantly. This power frees the user to focus on the exploration of the structure of the data and the interpretation of the output.
