This paper studies the performance with partial relay selection in amplify-and-forward (AF) cooperative networks, where the relay node is selected depending on the instantaneous channel information of source-relay hop. The channels are independent but not identically distributed Rayleigh fading distributed. We obtain the exact outage probability expression and symbol error rate (SER) expression in this system. Our results are verified through comparison with Monte Carlo simulations.
