This reputable textbook is intended for students majoring in engineering and the computing sciences who are taking their first course in probability and statistics. Calculus I for one year is required. The exposition of applications and theory in the text is well-balanced. The theoretical underpinnings of the statistical approaches are carefully developed by the authors at a level that is understandable to students with merely a calculus background. Students learn the reasoning behind the techniques and practice utilizing them as they investigate the application of the formal results to problem-solving. The programs, exercises, and examples were specifically chosen for engineering and computer science students and offer chances for actual data analysis.
