Stephen Vardeman and J. Marcus Jobe's motivating new book is appropriate for students in introductory engineering statistics courses, including chemical, mechanical, environmental, civil, electrical, and industrial. The authors stress the practical issues in data collection and the interpretation of the results of statistical studies over mathematical theory. Using real data and scenario examples along with chapter-long case studies to teach readers how to apply statistical methods, the book clearly and patiently helps students learn to solve engineering problems. The book's practical, applied approach encourages students to "do" statistics by carrying data collection and analysis projects all the way from problem formulation to preparation of professional technical reports.

Steve Vardeman is a Professor of Statistics and Industrial Engineering at Iowa State University. He holds a 1975 Ph.D. in Statistics from Michigan State University and B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mathematics from Iowa State. He is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association, an elected Ordinary Member of the International Statistical Institute, a Senior Member of the American Society for Quality and is a member of both the American Society for Engineering Education and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. His book Statistics for Engineering Problem Solving won the 1994 ASEE Meriam-Wiley Distinguished Author Award for an outstanding new engineering textbook, he is co-author of Statistical Quality Assurance Methods for Engineers, and the ISU College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has recognized him for outstanding teaching. He was Editor of Technometrics from 1993 to 1995 and both his research and teaching interests revolve around the engineering applications of statistics.Review:
