Summary

Concise and highly focused, this volume offers everything high school and beginning college students need to know to handle problems in probability and statistics. Numerous rigorously tested examples and coherent, to-the-point explanations are presented in an easy-to-follow format.
The treatment is organized in a way that permits readers to advance sequentially or skip around between chapters. An essential companion volume to the author's Attacking Trigonometry Problems and Attacking Problems in Logarithms and Exponential Functions, this book will equip students with the skills they will need to successfully approach the problems in probability and statistics that they will encounter on exams.
