This book is a compilation of drills written over a period of time in an effort to give my students the tools to overcome the categories of errors most made on dictation tests. I am an on-site and... More > online court reporting instructor and grade hundreds of dictation tests each year. In the process of that grading, it seemed that the same kinds of mistakes were being made over and over again; so for a year, I kept an accounting of categories of errors made on dictation tests. The result of that accounting was that briefs and phrases, contractions, word endings, alphabet, and numbers were the categories in which most steno errors were made. I looked around for drills for my students to help resolve the problems they were having in these five categories. I could find number drills but not drills for the other four categories; so I began to create drills, week by week, until I had a year’s worth of drills to assign to my students. This book contains those drills.< Less

Ink used for digital printing is one of the most precious substances in the world. A single gallon of ink costs over four thousand dollars and this is one reason why digitally printed books are so... More > expensive. However, the price of a book is not calculated according to the amount of ink used in its production. For example, a Lulu book of blank pages costs an artist as much to produce as a book filled with text or large photographs. Furthermore, as the number of pages increases, the price of each page decreases. A book containing the maximum number of pages printed entirely in black ink therefore results in the lowest cost and maximum value for the artist. Combining these two features, buyers of The Black Book can do so with the guarantee that they are getting the best possible value for their money.< Less
Predictive Analytics using R By Jeffrey Strickland
Hardcover: List Price: $77.66 $46.60 | You Save: 40%
Ships in 6-8 business days.
This book is about predictive analytics. Yet, each chapter could easily be handled by an entire volume of its own. So one might think of this a survey of predictive modeling. A predictive model is a... More > statistical model or machine learning model used to predict future behavior based on past behavior. In order to use this book, one should have a basic understanding of mathematical statistics — it is an advanced book. Some theoretical foundations are laid out but not proven, but references are provided for additional coverage. Every chapter culminates in an example using R. R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. You may download R, from a preferred CRAN mirror at http://www.r-project.org/. The book is organized so that statistical models are presented first (hopefully in a logical order), followed by machine learning models, and then applications: uplift modeling and time series. One could use this a textbook with problem solving in R—but there are no “by-hand” exercises.< Less

More > grows slowly and in line with the gross domestic product at best, you can barely differentiate your product, and your sales price and cost structure are highly cyclical. Does this environment sound attractive to you? Managers find these markets frustrating, investors find them difficult, and business school graduates find them boring. Yet, there are several companies that consistently outperform others and create billions of dollars in shareholder value, such as ExxonMobil, Methanex, Cargill, or Koch Industries. How are these companies doing it? This book provides answers with basic micro-economic concepts and real-world case examples. Many of the explanations appear counter-intuitive to commonly applied industry practices, thereby providing for “uncommon ideas in commoditized markets.”< Less
Crowdsourcing Wisdom By Della Rucker
Paperback: $14.99
Ships in 3-5 business days.
The ways we do day-to-day democracy – figure out what people want their governments to do, get people involved in decisions the way we know we should… Way too often, the only response... More > we get is a useless response. Our bigger problem, though, is the thousands that we don’t hear from. Who may see and understand things that we, the Insiders, are missing. Those people are not failing to participate because they don’t care about the places where they live. They’re failing to participate because we’ve given them a pretty clear message that we don’t want them to have a meaningful role in the process. In this book, we’ll walk through a more effective strategy for doing public engagement that gives both citizens and governments a better and more meaningful experience. We’ll conclude with some tactics for managing unproductive behavior when you find yourself stuck with some of our typical public situations.< Less
