Format: Paperback
This textbook provided me with a solid introduction to a complex but interesting field of study. As a computer science student, it provided me with a much-needed understanding of mathematical topics (random variate generation and statistics) while keeping me interested with challenging programming problems.

I have picked up a copy of the popular simulation textbook "Simulation Modeling and Analysis" since taking my "Discrete Event Simulation" course. While the two books cover similar material, I think that "Discrete Event Simulation" moves through the material faster, focuses on some of the more important (and challenging) issues, and keeps the reader more engaged along the way.

Considering how widely modeling and simulation are used in science, engineering, and business today, I think that a course based on this book would be a valuable addition to many undergraduate and graduate curricula.

Format: Paperback
This is good book\,while I did not really understand them all. I bought this book for Modeling and simulation class. Because it was online class. I realy read this book. I could not read the whole contents but I read most of it. Random number theory was very interesting.
