Many are calculus-based when a simple form works in the same way. The book is also extremely wordy and labor-intensive in derivations and examples. Because of this, it makes the work seem much harder than it really is, especially since your TI can do much of this work for you. The book itself is smaller than a typical textbook, and the editions are updated frequently. While the content typically doesn't change during an edition update, the homework problems at the end of each section do; if your professor gives you graded homework from the book, you're stuck with this thing.
The book does an OK job at educating at a higher level than a basic stats book. In its class, it would be considered on the higher-rated end, but don't expect this book to be the best thing you've ever read or skimmed. This is the worst textbook I have ever read! It presents the material in a very complicated manner, hard to understand. Moreover, the language and the examples are so dry, it is hard to keep your eyes open when reading the book.
The problems in the end of each chapter are so unlike one another that one has to go to the internet to find similar problems with solutions, and most problems are nothing like the examples presented in the chapters.
Even for a person with extensive mathematical knowledge this book makes it impossible to learn the subject.
To be fair, this might suit many other students but for me it was chaotic. There are many examples but they are hard to keep up with since they are lengthy.
It has, what I believe, a lot of information that could have been left out. For example, there are many links to studies within the text.
I needed this for a class. I ended up viewing a lot of Khan Academy videos and looking for another textbook online to read because I wasn't processing this one. One person found this helpful. This textbook was frustrating to say the least.
About this book
It was written in such a scientific manner that it felt like reading a research paper -- even for very simple concepts. In addition to its inability to explain the material, the published answers to the questions in the book were often wrong.
All in all, this book did more harm than good in teaching me statistics and I would not recommend it. Kindle Edition Verified download. I downloadd the eBook version of this to read with Kindle for a class.
Table of contents
Unfortunately, I can only view this book on my Android phone because "Kindle Cloud Reader can't open this book, but [I] can read it with [the] free Kindle app" which is conveniently not available for Windows.
More than the consumption aspect of the book, the examples contained within are dry, weirdly specific, unrealistic, and unhelpful toward actually understanding and applying the presented content. This is especially a negative when you realize that this text is supposed to be specifically for the practical application of probability and statistics in engineering and scientific fields.
I will preface this by saying that I have taken and received 4. That said, this textbook is terrible. The explanations are extremely long-winded, the formulas are stated in an unclear, vague manner, and the overall the reading is very dry. Examples are real-world, but all the in-text citations really distract from the problem, and most of the examples are beyond droll anyway.
If you have to download it, then good luck. I felt that this was an excellent book. I easily learned more from this book than the professor who, although seeming to know the subject matter, was deaf and couldn't understand his students.
I am seeking a degree in math and statistics teaching and I am really sorry I sold this book back but I needed the money at the time. I hope to download it back some day.
It is somewhat calculation intensive, but is manageable for those with a calculus background which is usually required anyway to take any sort of course in statistics at any college. The examples were great and instructive and I've gone on to pass level stats classes with A's.
I will be interested in having this book when I can afford it. If you can learn to get into the text, you will likely learn more from this book than you lecture I had to and will enjoy the subject as well. I had no idea this ebook did not come with a WebAssign access code. Now I can't return it and I have to spend more money on the access code separately. Very disappointed that site did not provide this as a disclaimer.
Maths Admissions Test

Probability and Statistics for Engineering and the Sciences. All applicants for Maths and its joint schools must sit the test on this date, otherwise your application will not be considered further. January You find out whether you've received an offer. After this you may ask for feedback from the college you applied to, including what MAT score you achieved.
Note for teachers: We will continue to include sequences and series on the MAT syllabus, including: arithmetic and geometric progressions and their sums, convergence condition for infinite geometric progressions.
As such, if there is flexibility in when a teacher is covering sequences and series, we would recommend that students are taught this material either at the end of year 12 or at the beginning of year 13 prior to October half-term. Last update on 11 January - How to register for the MAT You will sit the test in either your school or a local test centre.
Please note that schools must apply to become new test centres by the 30th September. The school must then register you for the test via the Entries Extranet. Combustion, Energetic nanomaterials 7. Robotics - Controls; Drones 9. Manufacturing - Laser based manufacturing.
Probability with Applications in Engineering, Science, and Technology
Optoelectronic materials, Solar cell, Transparent conductor 2. Van der Waal's material based membranes for desalination.
Graphene laminates based nanofluidic channels for gas separation. Small-scale active matter, Intracellular particle dynamics, Smart nano bio sensors.
Admission Procedure Admission is generally offered on the basis of an interview, which is supplemented by a written test if necessary.
The Institute will invite a limited number of candidates for a written test and interview based on the academic records, statement of purpose, etc. The written test is generally based on the topics related to general aptitude logical reasoning, analytical and numerical ability, etc. The candidates who do not qualify in the written test need not appear for interview. The reserved category candidates will be given due relaxation in cutoff marks as per the norms.
For example, in case of total railway fare of Rs. It is required to produce evidence railway ticket in support of the claim.Continuing Doctoral Programme CDP : This if for the candidates working in industry or as a faculty in any educational institution.
