Page 12: Table 1.2, last row:
"seq(v,b,s)" should read "seq(f,t,s)"
Page 38: 1st paragraph of 1.5.3.:
"the ecdf created by the command plot(density(ROE)) is shown in Figure 1.14." should read "the ecdf created by the command plot(ecdf(ROE)) is shown in Figure 1.14."
Page 45: Figure 1.17 (b):

Page 52: 1.7.4., 2nd paragraph:
"For our problem of testing a hypothesis about a population parameter" should more precisely read "For our problem of testing a hypothesis about the population mean"
