Summary

Schaum's Outline of Probability and Statistics, 2/e is an introduction to calculus-based statistics and probability, covering all the topics in statistics and probability courses directed to mathematics, natural-science, and engineering students. Probability theory supplies a methodology through which statistics can be used to draw conclusions on the basis of analysis of data like sampling theory, and prediction or forecasting. Since the text is calculus-based, it is above the level of elementary probability and statistics courses taken by a general college audience. It assumes a general familiarity with the subject matter, is geared mostly toward students in engineering or science majors.
