In general, i can say that i liked it. It is well written and easily understood. Good for undergraduate studies, suitable for engineers (say mechanical & electrical), not suitable for mathematicians.

Like all the books in this series, it has an excellent range of worked examples. Many other books on this topic are mathematically rigorous, but contain little in the way of example material that is needed to fully grasp the application of the topic. This is one of the most accessible books on the topic I have encountered to date.

This book is rather short on explanation, but it is very well structured, the topics covered and the worked examples are well chosen to build up a coherent and useful overview over this important topic. My copy was also remarkably cheap for such a well put together text! Highly recommended.

If like me you have no prior maths experience whatsoever and want to be able to read and understand some of the more advanced under-grad/grad text's on Prob/Random Variables and Stochastic Processes then this book is ideal.. The subject is taught in a concise manner from the ground up assuming very little or no prior knowledge..there are plenty of worked examples which help glide you through your learning.. As suggested in other reviews, use this book alone first or as a companion text to understanding books such as [Probability, Random Variables and Stochastic Processes - Athanasios Papoulis;] Again, I went from no knowledge to undergraduate level in about 3 weeks (and I'm really stupid).. Enjoy!!

Just fantastic 21 Nov. 2012
By endbegin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent way to self-learn what can be difficult topic. Each chapter has a brief theoretical introduction to the concepts followed by numerous solved problems, in a progressively increasing order of difficulty. Even though the subject matter can be difficult to absorb at times, and you need a fair level of mathematical maturity before you can tackle it, this book does a great job of breaking things down in an easier to digest format. It covers most of the well-known theorems and problems in this field, both from a mathematical and an applied perspective. I wouldn't have made it through my graduate studies without its help, and recommend it highly.

Far better than my text book. 22 Dec. 2013
By Emrys E. Maier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My professor and my text book were very difficult to follow so I bought this outline for help. I'm fairly certain this is what got my the A in probability -- without this outline I would have been entirely lost last semester!

NIcely organized, fast, and clear 10 Aug. 2013
By Tim Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you need to teach an undergraduate statistics class, such as Statistics for Engineers and Scientists, this is the book to prepare with. Such books as Devore and Johnson's "Statistics with Calculus" texts use minimal calculus. This book in contrast uses it extensively, but at a first year (through multi-variable) level. The best combination of textbooks is possible: use Devore or Johnson as a basis, and, as student's are able and willing take problems and classroom exposition from Hsu's PRV&RP.

A good argument could be made that in terms of evolving mathematical thinking -- definitions and theorems yielding analysis of applications and problems -- Hsu is far superior. He is quick and tight. On the other hand, sophomore students might not be able to get a more sophisticated mathematical exposition. That's where Devore and Johnson come in. Their texts also present the usual histograms, dot-plots, stem and leaf etc. level stuff of elementary statistics. They don't, however, take the use of calculus far enough. Somewhere in-between is the ideal. If you can get students up to Hsu then you've done a good job teaching.

The only slight catch with Hsu's book is that it stresses electrical and computer engineering over other types -- civil and mechanical. Some distributions that are in Devore and Johnson are not in Hsu and vice-versa. That said the core distributions (normal and binomial) are succinctly covered with as much calculus as is possible for a student having taken or in the process of taking a full two or three term calculus sequence.

Useful as a Companion to an Engineering Stats Course 17 April 2013
By Matt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like the concise nature of the topics. They are explained fairly well for use as a companion to a full course. I do find some steps are skipped for simplicity reasons and conciseness which can be a but frustrating for new and confusing topics. The solved problems at the end of each chapter are the most beneficial to learning....

Excellent Advanced Undergraduate Book 22 Sept. 2012
By Nelson Seixas dos Santos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is very good and are plenty of exercises. It helps advanced undergraduates to have a clue on what it will be ahead on their studies. Nevertheless, it would be a good idea to develop a little more the notion of probability spaces in terms of sigma-algebras.
