This book focuses on teaching probabilistic and statistical methods to upper-division electrical and computer engineering (EECE) students. It is the result of over 20 years of teaching this course in the rapidly changing environment of EECE education. In addition to being a readable and focused book for EECE students, the book is a teachable book for EECE instructors with a variety of technical backgrounds. The first part of the book, Chapters 1-3, contains fundamental probability material. The second part, Chapters 4-7, presents applications and extensions based upon the first three chapters. The four application chapters may be studied in any order, as they do not depend on each other in any essential way.
