We present a summary of recent measurements of W and Z properties and W/Z production in association with jets in collisions at √s = 1.96 TeV with the CDF and DØ detectors. Latest measurements of Z/γ* transverse momentum and are presented along with new measurements of the angular distributions of final state electrons from Drell Yan events as a way to probe Z boson production mechanisms. The mass dependence of the forward-backward asymmetry in → Z/γ* → e+e−. interactions is measured, the effective weak mixing angle extracted, and the most precise direct measurement of the vector and axial-vector couplings of u and d quarks to the Z boson presented. New measurements of jets produced in association with Z and W bosons for inclusive, beauty and charm jets are also discussed.
