Hodder Education publishes a single text book, AS Statistics, that covers all three AS modules; Z1, Z2 and Z3. The text for Z1 is the same as that for Statistics 1 but all the questions in the exercises have been changed. Z2 and Z3 are completely new, written for readers who are not studying mathematics. It has been designed for students from a non-mathematical background; the worked examples are set in real world contexts and the book includes activities and investigations as well as exercises.This book may be purchased in bulk, and at a discount, by schools and colleges through MEI. Please see the book order form

You might also find our book Companion to Advanced Mathematics and Statistics useful. This contains all the formulae and essential reference information required during AS and A level courses in mathematics and statistics, as well as many Higher Education and vocational courses, in a single volume.
