Uncertainties/ Error Analysis

  1. Sep 5, 2009 #1
    I am a First year Physics Student going into Second Year in a few weeks. Ive been coping very well with all the work and theory. However Along with tight and Limited Lab schedule my sessions feel rushed and unfurfilling, particularly the analysis section.

    Although we are given a lab manual which has a few pages dealing on errors and such I don't feel I've grasped it as well as I should have. So as preparation and along this year I'm looking for a good book dealing with this matter. (or resources)

    (I've tried searching this internally and externally to no avail, and the reviews of most books of this nature aren't very promising on the most part).

    Thank you for any help given.

    Data Reduction and Error Analysis for the Physical Sciences by Bevington and Robinson is always good

    Thanks... This book has mixed reviews though. I found this one a while back but still not 100%. Im seeing if anyone else has any other suggestions.
