Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

  • The Used and eBook copies of this book are not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


This comprehensive introduction to probability and statistics will give you the solid grounding you need no matter what your engineering specialty. Through the use of lively and realistic examples, the author helps you go beyond simply learning about statistics--you'll also learn how to put the statistical methods to use. In addition, rather than focusing on rigorous mathematical development and potentially overwhelming derivations, PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS FOR ENGINEERING AND THE SCIENCES emphasizes concepts, models, methodology, and applications that facilitate your understanding.

Good reference book October 21, 2011
I used this book for my statistics class at the University of Kentucky. This class was very easy for me, and I honestly didn't even need to use this book very much. When I did use it, it was extremely easy to find what I needed and it was easy to understand. I'm sure this book would be great for anyone who doesn't have a solid foundation of knowledge in statistics. And for those who do, it is a great reference book.
