Probability & Statistics for Engineering and the Sciences – Jay L. Devore – 6th Edition


This comprehensive introduction to and statistics will give you the solid grounding you need no matter what your specialty. Through the use of lively and realistic examples, the author helps you go beyond simply learning about statistics–you’ll also learn how to put the statistical methods to use. In addition, rather than focusing on rigorous mathematical development and potentially overwhelming derivations, Probability and Statistics for and the Sciences emphasizes concepts, models, methodology, and applications that facilitate your understanding.


  • “Simulation ” help students gain an understanding of sampling distributions and the insight they provide, especially when a derivation is too to carry out.
  • Strong coverage, especially with ANOVA and regression, is supported by an abundance of output from SAS® and MINITAB® and coverage of methods. Inclusion of JavaTM Applets from Gary McClelland’s Seeing Statistics, specifically designed for this -based text, allows students to experience statistics firsthand.
