From the Preface:

More information is available at the book webpage.

Norman Matloff wrote:Why is this book different from all other books on mathematical probability and statistics? The key aspect is the book's consistently applied approach, especially important for engineering students.

Norman Matloff wrote:As prerequisites, the student must know calculus, basic matrix algebra, and have some skill in programming. As with any text in probability and statistics, it is also necessary that the student has a good sense of math intuition, and does not treat mathematics as simply memorization of formulas.
