Engineering statistics

the book was in very good condition when i got it. it was like someone bought it and then decided to sell it. and i got it only a day or two after i ordered it. Very good.

Excellent introductory text

This book is quite readable, and provided me a good basis for further study. As I am in industry, I read through the examples as if they were part of the normal text, and skipped all the exercises at the end of each chapter. The book assumes the reader has the level and comfort with math that most engineers have, vs. biology focused people, eg it doesn't make excuses when it takes the derivative of something to show that least squares is optimal. The examples are also drawn from engineering, eg manufacturing tolerances rather than fertilizer yield. It has a high ratio of text to equations, helpful for gaining an intuitive understanding of what's going on.For a gentler introduction to stats, I recommend Phillip's "How to Think About Statistics".
