Latest JMP® Student Edition helps students master statistics quickly

CARY, NC  (07 Aug. 2012)  – Students can now take advantage of a new, easy-to-use, streamlined version of JMP® desktop statistical discovery software from SAS, the leader in business analytics. 

JMP Student Edition, updated with tools added in JMP 10, provides all the statistics covered in standard introductory and even some intermediate courses. A 12-month, single-user license is distributed by publishers that bundle the software with textbooks sold through college and university bookstores. JMP Student Edition mirrors the applied approach of modern courses and helps students master statistical concepts quickly.

Visual and interactive, JMP Student Edition enables students to view and uncover data patterns easily. Students point and click their way through statistical problems, and the software displays results as statistics and graphs in the same window. Students can easily subset, perform subsequent analyses, and create 3-D and moving graphics to help understand their results.

JMP Student Edition is an ideal starting point for mastering the advanced features found in the full version of JMP students will use in graduate-level courses, internships and in their jobs after graduation. JMP Student Edition hones the statistical thinking skills that help prepare students for an increasingly competitive and knowledge-based global economy.

What educators are saying about JMP®

"Bottom line, you don't spend your time teaching software [with JMP], you spend time teaching statistics." – Peter Lenk, Professor of Operations Management Sciences and Marketing, Michigan Ross School of Business.

"I began exploring JMP, and it was a lot of fun. So I mastered it in a teaching environment, and once you've used it there, you tend to use it everywhere." – Mark Johnson, PhD, , University of Central Florida.
