From the reviews:
"Aiming to fill the gap between tutorial-type resources and specialized treatises, this volume, which has been tested by Fornasini's students in laboratory courses, offers a very clear, concise didactic approach to evaluating uncertainty. Actual worked examples are noted throughout the text, along with numerous figures depicting representative problems. Fornasini ... addresses issues of uncertainty concerning significant digits and rounding, use of instruments, a posteriori evaluations, moments of several probability distributions, and indirect measurements. ... Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, researchers, and faculty." (D. J. Gougeon, Choice, Vol. 46 (10), June, 2009)
"The aim of this book ... is to describe the nature of uncertainty in physical experiments and to provide the useful statistical tools for data analysis. ... The present material is mainly addressed to the undergraduate students but could be applied by the researchers ... and by the secondary school teachers as well. ... we recommend this useful book for wide audience of readers without advanced knowledge of modern Mathematics." (Alexander V. Bulinski, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1163, 2009)"This is a book that arose from the author's `long-lasting teaching experience' in the Department of Physics of the University of Trento ... . the author found a gap between the elementary texts used ... and the more sophisticated books written for those with an extensive background in higher mathematics. This book attempts to fill that gap. ... helpful to many students and indeed researchers. ... many of us involved in radiation dosimetry would find much of help in this volume in our day-to-day work." (Ralph H. Thomas, Radiation Protection Dosimetry, Vol. 140 (1), 2010)
