Until I came across this book, I thought there was a conspiracy out there to make sure that all probability books had to be written in the most intimidating fashion possible.
This book was such a relief. The text starts off the same as most with Bayes rule and all the axioms, but it does so in a very straightforward manner. For instance, on page 66 when it does talk about the axioms, it actually defines what an axiom is first. Huh... imagine that. This is in direct contrast with books by Papoulis/Pillai and Leon-Garcia. Those books simply put down the mathematical jargon and simply presume (falsely) that you understand everything.
This book has an excellent definition of WHAT A RANDOM VARIABLE IS! Then uses numerous examples to drive the point home.
I especially like how it starts with discrete R.V. first (ch.4), then cont R.V. (ch.5). There are far more examples than needed, but I am not complaining. The book then goes onto multiple R.V.'s in chapter 6.
After this however the book loses some points in my mind (though not many). The book really goes into statistics after this and leaves the probability alone. For instance characteristic/moment generating functions are only briefly mentioned in the appendix, and functions of R.V.'s (single only) are in the appendix also. This is a super huge shame since the author’s styles are fantastic and they touch on the complicated stuff only briefly.
Nevertheless, the first 6 chapters are so well done that the book does deserve 5 stars. If you are struggling in probability (as I once was) this book will get you back on track. If this book cannot teach you the basics of probability, no book can.

As a Mechanical Engineering student, I never had a Probabilty/Statistics course in college. However, this book was very clear and easy to understand. I also liked the book because the examples and writing were from the perspective of real-world manufacturing/engineering examples. It seemed to cover every aspect of statistics. The examples and exercises were very helpful, as well. Unfortunately, our class could only cover about 6 chapters, so I wasn't able to learn more topics. However, the book peaked my interest in the topic and I may someday like to take another class on the topic. The book also seems like it will be a valuable reference when I am working in the engineering field and may need to do statistical analysis. I would recommend it to anyone taking a statistics course.

Engineers always think Statistics as a science of dice and coins, and tend to simplify the analysis of random results with means and standard deviations. "Applied Statistics and Probability for Engineers" shows how this important science can help engineers to develop and improve processes and products. The text is clear and comprehensive covering from basic probability to statistical quality control. The examples and exercises represent practical problems and interesting case studies of engineering and experimental design.

This is an excellent reference work, though, as a text is is inadequate. I found that several of the answers in the back are incorrect and often the practice questions rely too much "refer to problem 8-16." The explanations are somewhat hard to follow as is the practice of placing figures some distance away from the related text. This is a Wiley book so it is over-priced, but what are you going to do?

I took this class during my 1st semester as an IOE student at Univ of Michigan. Back then I never had done any real applications of Stats before, so I basically chugged through the course. But now as a professional, working engineer, I realize what an awesome book this is!! It is a MUST as a reference tool for ALL engineers.. great examples as well. DON't sell this book back!!
