Book Description

This text is designed for a two-semester introductory course in statistics for students majoring in engineering or any of the physical sciences.  Inevitably, once these students graduate and are employed, they will be involved in the collection and analysis of data and will be required to think critically about the results.  Consequently, they need to acquire knowledge of the basic concepts of data description and statistical inference and familiarity with statistical methods they are required to use on the job.

Editorial Reviews


"A salient feature of this book is the clarity with which many statistical concepts have been presented.  A very nice blend of theory and applications.  It contains a wealth of illustrative examples and problem sets.  All the important concepts havae been highlighted; real-life data has been extensively used throughout the book.  Students will find it very appealing and u seful on their way to learning the basic statistical concepts and tools."  -  Dharam V. Chopra, Wichita State University
"I like the problems in M&S-4 because they are all based on engineering applications of probability and statistics.  I especially like the problems at the end of chapter because students have to think more to solve them.  I favor problems that require calculations because engineers are problem solvers". - Charles H. Reilly, University of Central Florida
"I think this text is one of the best I have seen when it comes down to real data sets.  The authors successfully included small and large real data sets from various real world problems in engineering, mathematical sciences, and natural sciences." - Dr. Edward J. Danial, Morgan State University

1I am very glad I only rented the book
By Kerrowynn
I am very glad I only rented the book. Amazon book rental is amazing and this review is only about the book itself.

This was the required book for my Statistics course, but it was completely useless. The print it tiny, the diagrams are inadequate, and there is no way that the information provided by the book would ever lead to being able to solve the questions asked by the book. I ended up only using one chart in the back and occasionally checking the answer pages to see if my practice work was correct. In the case of my class I could have gotten away with not having the book at all.

By Issac
Very poorly constructed, started falling apart after a couple weeks of classes in which it mostly sat at home aside from using for homework.

A large % of the solution #s are wrong, leaving you to struggle to determine if you did the right thing or if the book is right. Statisticians are not exactly known for being the most enjoyable instructors, if you can avoid adding to your turmoils by using this book.

4Simple Statistics
By Maria Maliagros
If you are looking for a statistics book that explains things in a simple and elementary way, this book is for you! Additionally, the problems are straightforward. However, it requires that you know calculus I for some of the problems. It also has computer applications that you can practice. The only drawback is that the probability chapter is skimpy. You may want to supplement your knowledge of probability with another book, since statistics requires that you know probability first.
