wonderful text book March 14, 2011
by
I purchased this text book for a probability course. This text book has good examples, good coverage of the material, lots of problems, and a nice section of self-test problems that helps study for tests. It also has issues with the wording of the problems. Its exercises are fairly challenging, interesting, and there is a "self-test" section at the end of each chapter which provides fairly good explanations of how to carry out the problems.
