Applied Statistics and Probability for Engineers [with Just Ask!]

3.42  ·  Rating details ·  105 Ratings  ·  5 Reviews
Written by engineers, it uses a practical, applied approach that is more oriented to engineering than any other text available. Instead of a few engineering examples mixed in with examples from other fields, all of its unique problem sets reflect the types of situations encountered by engineers in their working lives.

If I find an error in a textbook, I make a note of it so I can let my professors know; at this point my textbook is so riddled with "error here" Post-It notes, it would have been easier to mark the pages without errors. If, like me, you are being held hostage by the textbook-industrial complex propagated by your school, here are a few things to look out for:

- Incorrect mathematics: I have no idea how this book has the gall to say that "5292+270+246=6050" [Example 2-8 page 21]. I must have missed

DO NOT attempt to use this book to teach yourself. There are many errors and typos that will lead to the wrong conclusions. Use caution and consult someone who already knows statistics and probability (hopefully you have a good professor) well enough to tell you where the errors are.

This book is awful. There are many mistakes in the book. Many of the practice problems have incorrect answers in the back. Formulas are introduced poorly. The equations seem out of left field and rarely are motivated to the reader. Stay away from this book.

Poorly written. Too many times equations are given without defining the variables. In that a given variable letter denotes different variables depending on the equation, this is a serious failing.
