Retail Price to Students: $159.99A one-semester, student-friendly approach to the undergraduate Probability and Statistics course in electrical engineering
Probability, Statistics, and Random Signals offers a comprehensive treatment of probability, giving equal treatment to discrete and continuous probability. The topic of statistics is presented as the application of probability to data analysis, not as a cookbook of statistical recipes. This student-friendly text features accessible descriptions and highly engaging exercises on topics like gambling, the birthday paradox, and financial decision-making.

"Probability, Statistics, and Random Signals seems to remedy most of the shortcomings I have found in other texts. It is well written, succinct, and engaging. The examples and problems are excellent."--Eddie Jacobs, University of Memphis
"This book is detail oriented, expresses concepts clearly, and is very good for electrical engineering students. It covers solid basic materials, reflects the current state of the discipline, and is factually sound."--JeongHee Kim, San Jose State University
