The transport features of isotropically emitted electrons inside amorphous samples are analyzed using a Monte Carlo method. This method is used in several electron spectroscopies, e.g., Auger, ESCA, CEMS, which differ only in the excitation mechanism. The scattering model includes realistic cross sections and it uses the continuous slowing down approximation corrected for energy straggling. The energy and angular distributions of the electrons emerging from the surface are computed for several sample compositions and electron initial conditions. Simple scaling rules, which may be useful for a quantitative approach, are found.
