Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

An example-rich exploration of both elementary probability and basic statistics -- with emphasis on their application in engineering and the sciences. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

>>>

KEY BENEFIT: This text is rich in exercises and examples, and explores both elementary probability and basic statistics, with an emphasis on engineering and science applications. Much of the data have been collected from the author's own consulting experience and from discussions with scientists and engineers about the use of statistics in their fields. In later chapters, the text emphasizes designed experiments, especially two-level factorial design.

 

Introduction, Organization and Description of Data, Probability, Probability Distributions, Probability Densities, Sampling Distributions, Inferences Concerning a Mean, Comparing Two Treatments, Inferences Concerning Variances, Inferences Concerning Proportions, Regression Analysis, Analysis of Variance, Factorial Experimentation, Nonparametric Tests, The Statistical Content of Quality-Improvement Programs, Application to Reliability and Life Testing

 

For all readers interested in probability and statistics for engineers.

I would NOT recommend this text to any student or professional.

Moreover, many important issues are not covered, and those covered are not very analysed.

The answers/solutions are to questions that are not in this book.

As a former student of statistics, I do not recommend purchasing this text. The book possesses multiple grammatical errors (many of which confuse the context of the problem), multiple incorrect answers provided in the back of the book, and multiple mistakes in the given information for a problem. This book will utilize variables without explanation, pose "real world" problems with little to no contextual background required to solve the problem, and skip many important topics vital to real world applications. I am currently writing to the editor in an effort to receive a refund for this book. I would NOT recommend this text to any student or professional.

Format: Hardcover
This is probably the second worst textbook I have ever read. I have struggled through the third chapter. In some cases, the text seems as though it was written for elementary school math covering set therory: extremely detailed and excessively verbose. In other cases, the text throws out examples without explaining any reasoning, or any how or why a formula is used.

The text continually refers to examples in previous sections, which forces the reader to search back through the text. The interuption is distracting and annoying. In many cases, the page numbers where the example can be found are not given. The text also does this with the exercises, forcing the student to wear-out the pages. Sometimes, I feel as though I need two copies of the textbook so I don't waste so much time thumbing back and forth.

I have ended up reading and re-reading the text while trying to understand some of the concepts and rational. In some areas, the author does not explain anything. While other times, the text continues for pages explaining things that an elementry school graduate should know. I am waiting to see multiplication tables in future chapters. All the while, some college level information is brushed-over. I typically need to work several exercises and beat my head against the wall a few times until I go ah ha! Why didn't the author explain this.

With textbooks like this, it is no wonder engineers have a reputation for poor communication skills.

For 6th edition:

One may use this book as a handbook for some statistical problems. However, I find it very poor in terms of reading it from scratch. Moreover, many important issues are not covered, and those covered are not very analysed.

i.e. I cant find the transformation of stochastic variables, The properties of the gaussian d. are not fully covered. No Rayleigh or Rice distribution? After all I am not sure this book is for engineers.

Format: Hardcover
For the most part this is actually one of the better statistics books I have used. It's greatest strengths lie in the number of examples provided and the "Do's and Don'ts" at the end of each chapter. The narratives and proofs do a fairly decent job of introducing and developing new concepts and formulas, and there is generally a good segway from one topic to the next. If you have other statistics books like I do, this book actually does a good enough job deriving each distribution that things became clear here that I had always puzzled over in my other books. It is admittedly a bit distracting at times when an example references data from an earlier example in a previous chapter requiring you to bookmark pages with your fingers so that you can flip back and forth as you work through an example. In other areas, at times an example might skip a few steps which will require you to think through how they made the leap. Still, despite these shortcomings and the occassional errata, I still believe this is one of the better statistics textbooks.

The book is helpful, but I did not realize it only has answers to the odd problems. That was disappointing.
I would have liked to have known that before purchasing. Most answer manuals have answers to all problems.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By SamBK on November 8, 2004
Format: Hardcover
The book is rather well written. It starts with verty simple probability theory and then describes densities and gets into tests and other topics. The level of math is reasonable and I think undergraduates in both engineering and economics should be able to handle that level of math. Every topic comes with numerical examples which makes it easy to get ideas. There are exercises in the book too and many of them (but not all of them) are helpful for understanding. At the end of the book you can conveniently find tables of distributions and different statistics you can use. I am still using those tables for my works. The only downside is that the book doesn't cover much of probability (like functions of random variables). The distribution covered are mainly to build basis for later chapters about testing. So I would say this is a good book for those who want to learn statistical tests and reliability.

If you had another choice or sharing the book with a friend for homework, I would recommend that. Use your school library for homework is another option as well.

The probability and statistics for engineeting book provides a very good first book on probability and statistics. It is very useful to engineers and scientists that need to analyse and interpret data. It has a very good material on statistical inference and on quality and reliability. I strongly recommend this book.
