Discount Minitab/Minitab Features

Spoke to Minitab Inc. yesterday after an email suggested that they will be
bundling Minitab with Moore & McCabe. Also Wiley will be bundling Minitab
with Siegel. In fact, any publisher can bundle Minitab with their book
simply by signing an agreement.

The software will be the Student Version of Minitab with a student guide.

I do not know how much we might save buying the bundle. Plan to contact
companies soon and find out.


The full version (V10) of Minitab for the Mac has some nice features
(including being able to compare historgrams and box-plots of the same data
at the same time) and can handle larger sets of data - (as I wrote
previously, I ran out of room using the student version when I asked 430
students 8 questions each). In addition, I am told your can change the font
sizes of text and point size of graphs. This is important if you plan to use
an LCD (ever try to project a dot plot in the Student Version of Minitab!).
If you call an Educational Discounter (Campus Tech 1-800-543-8188) - you can
get the full version for the Mac for $199.
Christine Sarris, Academic Marketing Representative at Minitab (800-448-355 x
304 or has been a great help. She has a complete packet
she can send out.
