An excellent text with lots of examples and a broad range of problems. This may be an old book now, but it remans a very clear and intuitive introduction to probability and statistics without sacrificing much rigour. It would be great if there were an accompanying solutions book.

I am studying the book. However it is little bit difficult to solve the example without solution, so I wonder if the solution exist or not. If do, I would like to take the solution. let me know whether it's possible or not.

HASH(0x90f2fb1c) out of 5 stars A beautiful text 21 Aug. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A beautiful text of mainstream statistics, starting from scratch and taking you clearly to a good standard. If it provided answers to exercises, it would be perfect for self-study. Nevertheless, still amazingly clear without sacrificing the rigour and precision of the maths.
This must be the first book for anyone who wants to take on probability and statistics seriously.

HASH(0x90f2ff84) out of 5 stars Insightful 24 April 2009
By Zac - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If I would be required to describe this book (I refer to the 1974 edition) I would describe it as 'insightful'. Instead of just providing a comprehensive overwies of mathematical statistics (which accomplished the book by the way) it provides interpretations and explanations why definitions are introduces, theorems are stated, certain concepts are needed. As such it is definetely no cook book but allows you to gain deep insights into the (certainly non-trivial) matter.

The type setting is fine considered the fact it is quite old. I wish there would be a new edition just to make sure that this book we be available for all how want to learn from it.

There are many book available on this topic (mathematical statistics) however this one is especially well suited as a first book. Many other book are way more demanding and or explain the concepts to a lesser degreen than a beginner may need.

In my opinion this is really a great book that makes joy reading. Great job!

HASH(0x90f2ffa8) out of 5 stars An excellent introduction 8 July 2011
By N. Mozahem - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book that does a great job of introducing the reader to the theory of statistics. The great thing about this textbook is that it takes you from square one to a pretty high level. There are a lot of examples which are included and the solutions are clear. It should be noted though that this is a book about mathematical statistics, and therefore it is not a cook book. The authors motivate the material, but there is a lot of math. However, the prerequisites are very basic (one year of calculus). By reading this book you will end up understanding the material instead of just memorizing the equation of a binomial distribution for example. I took off one star for two reasons. First, there are no answers to selected problems. I think that this is not acceptable for a textbook. I am not asking for the solutions, only the final answers to make sure that the work that I have done is correct. Second, the book barely mentions the topic of combinatorial analyses even though it (the book) does not suppose prior knowledge of probability. I think that this (minor) gap should be filled by including a small chapter on the topic at the start of the book, or at least as an appendix. Other than that, I highly recommend this book to everyone, even those studying social sciences. Most research methods will require you to understand the material in this book.

HASH(0x90f2ff90) out of 5 stars Much better than the usual alternative 30 Oct. 2008
By Steve M. - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this on a friend's recommendation as an alternative to the Hogg, Craig text. The discussions are more complete in this book, and most of the examples are accompanied by more explanation. Worth getting if you have an undergraduate mathematical statistics or graduate econometrics class.

HASH(0x90f3e414) out of 5 stars There is a 3rd edition solution manual!! 24 April 2004
By Shane Sanders - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was looking through an old file cabinet in my office and found the solution manual for the 3rd edition of Mood, Graybill, and Boes. It was apparently put together by Boes and published by McGraw-Hill. It is fifty pages long and answers a lot (but not all) of the questions. Perhaps those who have expressed an interest in the manual should contact McGraw-Hill. Take care.
