Introduction to Mathematical Statistics by Hogg and Craig

  • Jul 17, 2003
Rating:
+4
I worked with an earlier version of this text. The text is
geared for math majors. There are many practical examples;
however, the more theoretical examples are elusive at best.
Coverage of the basic laws of probability is good. The examples
dealing with continuous random variables require some prior
knowledge of intermediate calculus which should be no problem
for math majors or engineers. The book benefited me when I
took and passed the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination.
In addition, I've taught statistics several times.
This work is geared for the above-average student. In some
areas, it could be supplemented with the Schaum's Statistics
Outline.

About this book

Wiki

"The writing style is exceptionally clear; also in the more advanced portion, I haven't any reservations about use. It is a much more professional and modern text than ours. I would seriously consider adopting the text if I teach it again and shall suggest it to my colleagues." — Walter Freiberger, Brown University

"The Hogg/McKean/Craig revision stands out as a modernized version of Hogg and Craig. This revision enhances considerably the statistical inference part with discussion of new procedures and methods, and puts in perspective a broad array of modern statistical methods." — Hosam Mahmoud, George Washington University
