If anyone has any copies of the first edition of Yates, Moore, McCabe or POD first edition languishing in your bookroom, I could really use them! I could pay shipping, or, if it's easier, come pick them up if they are within about two or three hours of San Francisco.
(I've used YMM as my primary text, supplementing with a classroom set of POD for regression for non-linear data and for inference for chi-squared procedures. My program is growing, and some books have gone missing. I'd like at least 10 YMM, but have a planned use for up to about 120. I'd really like enough PODs (35 more) to hand them out as well.)
Yes, it's shameful that I'm using books that are so old. However, my students have been doing well, so it's been hard to make a case that I need $7000 worth of new textbooks and materials. I do supplement with lots of current event data, so I can keep my examples topical and timely.
Thanks for any help!
