How does Dennis Wackerly, Richard L. Scheaffer's Mathematical Statistics with Applications, 7th Edition published in 2007 MATERIALLY differ from Richard J. Larsen, Morris Marx's Introduction to Mathematical Statistics and Its Applications, 6th Edition published in 2018? Wackerly died in 2019.
Does the 11 year difference matter?
I riffled them at the library. They both offer a Student's Solution Manual to half the exercises, and a password protected Instructor Solutions Manual to all exercises. But I PREFER students to be able to freely access all solutions to all exercises!1
I loathe they're both grayscale! It's blindingly — pun intended — obvious that color can ameliorate graphs and charts! See below.
I rely especially on one of the most useful of all learning devices: the inclusion of detailed solutions to exercises. Solutions to problems are commonplace in ele-mentary texts but quite rare (although equally valuable) at the upper division undergraduate and graduate level. This feature makes the book suitable for independent study, and further widens the audience.
