Mary RichardsonThis book is intended as a text for a one- or two- semester undergraduate introductory course in probability, statistics, and reliability with an emphasis on applications. The authors state that Probability, Statistics, and Reliability for Engineers was developed with an emphasis on engineering and technological problems.....and is intended to better prepare future engineers, as well as assist practicing engineers, in understanding the fundamentals of probability, statistics, and reliability methods, especially thier applications, limitations, and potentials.
Overall, Probability, Statistics, and Reliability for Engineers does a good job presenting real-life examples to illustrate each new concept, but not enough basic, nonapplied examples are given and absolutely no theory is presented to support any of the concepts introduced. It is my opinion that the reader would need prior exposure to statistical concepts in order to read, comprehend, and learn from this book.
