No, but my version was Mathematica 4.2, not 5. In the Teacher's Edition
1.1 for MacOS X - the Windows version and the classic MacOS version uses
the Mathematica 4.1 kernel.

Furthermore, one of two the books I've purchased talks about:

Needs["Statistics`Master`"] instead of
Needs["Statistics`DescriptiveStatistics`"]. "Getting Started with
Mathematics", isbn 0-471-24050-8, covers version 2 and 3 of program, and
"The Mathematica Book 5th Edition" by Stephen Wolfram with version 5.

In version 5 "Mean" has been moved to the part of Mathematica functions
that loads automatically.

But, now it works.

BTW, is there a way to automatically load packages? The method mentioned
in The Mathematica Book 5th Edition [page 401, 2.7.11, DeclarePackage]
seem to demand a file with declarations that are explicitly called.
