John E. Freund's Mathematical Statistics Reviews

I found that this book was excellent in covering all the matierial that is required in order to pass the 101 course in stats for the institute and faculty joint exams. Everything is easily digestible with the right amount of examples. Especially for a person with no stats background.

the first few chapters about probability and simple statisitcs are very clear and easy to understand. However, later chapters lose clarity and become increasingly difficult to comprehend because of a lack of examples.

This book differentiates itself from other mathematical statistics books by the accuracy of its content (almost no errors). Multivariable Calculus is definitely a prerequisite to this book though, and many of the exercises and examples deal with proofs. I would have given the book 5 stars but it lost points for two reasons:1.) The latter chapters (after chapter 3, except the applications chapters) include almost no applied examples.2.) The authors have a bad habit of introducing new problems in the exercises.I can't think of any proofs that were neglected, and all of the proofs were elegant and complete, but very few applied examples were given. Despite these shortcomings I liked the book and feel it is a good calculus based introductory book to mathematical statistics. If you are looking for a deeper understanding of statistics and the mathematical theory behind statistics then this is a great book for you!

I used this book for a 300 level undergraduate probability course. I'm glad it's over now!Pros:1) The book is set up in a straightforward way, running from counting techniques to probability and then statistics.2) The examples were pretty helpful.Cons:1)PRICE!!!!!!!! Every college student knows that textbooks are overpriced these days. The companies seem to justify this by adding links to related web content, putting color photos/graphics on every page, etc. This book has none of this! It's all black and white! All the graphs look like they were done on an Apple II! Hey, I like pictures as much as the next guy, but but a 6 year old edition of 600 black text pages is not worth $100!!!!!!2)No solution manualfor some of the more complicated problems, you need the solution manual, not just a numerical answer at the back of the book.Verdict:If you have to buy this, but it used! Stand up to textbook pricegouging!

the first few chapters about probability and simple statisitcs are very clear and easy to understand. However, later chapters lose clarity and become increasingly difficult to comprehend because of a lack of examples.

Freund's Mathematical Statistics remains an utterly fantastic book for the seriously motivated learner of statistics! I'd recommend it in a heartbeat to anyone who wants a good intermediatelevel introduction to mathematical statistics. Although it seemingly lacks a CD ROM and solution guide (if there are any, please inform Amazon.com), I find it most challenging, and, quite frankly, exciting. A great source of information!
