This is the most widely used mathematical statistics book at the top 200 universities in the United States. Premiere authors Dennis Wackerly, William Mendenhall, and Richard L. Scheaffer present a solid foundation in statistical theory while conveying the relevance and importance of the theory in solving practical problems in the real world. The authors' use of practical a ...more

The book is okay as far as content goes, but many of the solutions it gives are actually incorrect.

My complaint about mathematical textbooks is that they exploit college students' inelastic demand for education goods and charge a fortune for every update of the book — compounding this problem is that when they release a "new edition" the content itself stays exactly the same and only the practice problems are changed. If you can't do the homework with a previous edition, you have to buy the newe

One of the best introductory mathematical statistics books I have worked through. Clear, concise and elucidating writing, with tons of examples to digest the material. Although by no means damaging the conceptual clarity and quality, at times the clear and easy-to-understand writing is at the expense of mathematical rigour, but the authors rightly mention every such case. Very much recommended to anyone who wants to learn and thoroughly understand statistical concepts.

I orginally used this textbook for an undergraduate course in Probability and Statistics. This text came in very handy in graduate school when taking a course in applied probability models in engineering. It was heplful to reference this text due to the mathematically rigorus coverage (proofs) of many theorems we covered in graduate school, when from an engineering perspective, this is often skipped.

This book has many good exercises but lacks a true theoretical view. My friends have pointed out some inconsistencies in a few of the proofs. Don't expect much from the answer provided in the back of the book.

This is my first statistics book, and although it probably won't be the last I am forced to study, I can easily say it will be the best. This is one of the best texts I've ever had through undergrad in Aerospace Engineering to a grad degree in Environmental Policy and Management and now another grad in Operations Research. Well organized, plenty of examples, great practice problems and everything you've ever wanted to know about the basics of discrete, continuous, and multivariate probability di ...more

Used in a two-semester intro probability and statistics course. Great textbook. Clear examples, and lots of practice problems and solutions. I taught myself a lot straight from the book during my statistics classes.

This is a popular text for many professors. I highly recommend purchasing the online content as well to supplement the problems.
