There are 4 texts you should consider, all written to target the AP Stats syllabus. They are: Bock, Velleman, and DeVeaux, Stats: Modeling the World, 3rd Ed. (Addison-Wesley ISBN: 978-0-13-135959-8) Peck, Olsen, and Devore, Introduction to Statistics and Data Analysis, 3rd Ed. (Duxbury ISBN: 978-0-495-11873-2) Starnes, Yates, and Moore, The Practice of Statistics, 4th Ed. (Bedford, Freeman & Worth ISBN: 978-1-4292-4559-3) Watkins, Sheaffer, and Cobb, Statistics in Action, 2nd Ed. (Key Curriculum Press ISBN: 978-1-55953-909-8) Obviously, I have a personal favorite there, but I'd suggest you get examination copies of each and (if possible) have some of your students take a look at them.
AP Stats is a great course -- enjoy! -- Dave

We are looking at The Moore/McCabe/Craig Book, "Intro to the Practice of Statistics" or the Peck/Olsen/Devore,"Introduction to Statistics & Data Analysis." With tight budgets I hate to make a wrong decision!
