# Essentials Of Probality & Statistics ## Essentials  Of Probality & Statistics : For Engineers & Scientics

This text covers the essential topics needed for a fundamental understanding of basic statistics and its applications in the fields of engineering and the sciences. Interesting, relevant applications use real data from actual studies, showing how the concepts and methods can be used to solve problems in the field. Students using this text should have the equivalent of the completion of one semester of differential and integral calculus.
