We present a study of events with W bosons and hadronic jets produced in (p
) over barp collisions at a center of mass energy of 1.8 TeV. The data cons
ist of 51400 W-->e nu decay candidates from 108 pb(-1) of integrated lumino
sity collected using the CDF detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. Cr
oss sections and jet production properties have been measured for W+greater
than or equal to1 to greater than or equal to4 jet events. The data compar
e well to predictions of leading-order QCD matrix element calculations with
added gluon radiation and simulated parton fragmentation.
