2The amount of errors is not an exaggeration
By Ky
The large amount of errors makes it hard to trust what I read, and I end up wasting a lot of valuable study time fact checking with other sources.

I actually think the textbook does a good job at explaining concepts and the example problems are very thorough and clear, however, it is hard to take a 6th edition textbook seriously that has so many errors.

Upon initially reading the reviews for this textbook, I thought people were exaggerating about the amount of errors, but I have found dozens of errors and typos. What is most concerning is the highlighted important equations throughout each chapter very often have typos - very serious typos that change the meaning of the equations completely.

I would recommend this textbook if the errors weren't so serious.. but they are. And for such a steep price? So I don't recommend it. Maybe the next edition will be better - you know what they say, the 7th try is always the best (...right?)

1Full of errors and bad explanations
By E.B.
If I could give this book ZERO stars, I would. Not only are the explanations and derivations bordering on useless but it is also bursting at the seams with errors and poor sentence structure that makes it difficult to understand what the author is trying to convey. I've learned more from searching for explanations online and a $10 book from a used book store. I don't expect any book to be perfect but the companion site for this book has a 2+ page long list of errors in the book. At this point I'm only using this book for the homework problems and as a reference for equations. In six years of Undergrad and Grad school, I've never encountered a worse book.

2Needs significant improvements, feels like a poor first revision..
By Ismayil Adigozalzada
You might have read numerous comments regarding a long list of errors and typos in this revision of the book. Well - they're mostly true. I didn't have much choice and had to buy this book because it was specified as the official textbook by my instructor for the Applied Statistics for Engineering course.

There are some nice things about this book. For example, as an engineer, I enjoyed the fact that all the example problems were from real world engineering and scientific applications. Also, I felt like the book in general was well-paced and at the completion of each major sub-topic you get a chance to solve some practice problems. On the other hand, I stumbled upon several practice problems where in order to solve the problem you really needed to know the concepts from following chapters which was a bit confusing.

In summary, considering the sheer amount of technical, typographic and grammatical errors and the relatively high price I feel obliged to rate this book at two stars.
