For a first course in probability , it s quite heavy and complete Be ready for some mild headaches on the way since the book is exercise centric But it s worth it If you want to learn virtually everything about combinations and random variables, this book is great And I m so glad to have learned about the concept of surprise and how, from a simple set of axioms, one can retrieve the entropy formula check section 9.3 Another plus, despite the tremendous amount of exercises, all solution For a first course in probability , it s quite heavy and complete Be ready for some mild headaches on the way since the book is exercise centric But it s worth it If you want to learn virtually everything about combinations and random variables, this book is great And I m so glad to have learned about the concept of surprise and how, from a simple set of axioms, one can retrieve the entropy formula check section 9.3 Another plus, despite the tremendous amount of exercises, all solutions are also provided in like 80 pp or so

Good examples, good problems Sometimes the explanations didn t help as much as I d like them to, and sometimes the problems were overly repetitive Still, good.

As the saying goes, probability is inherently challenging, not trivial like calculus If your feelings about calculus are a bit different, you might find this book not so much a first course as a confusing deathmarch.This ISBN is the 2nd Edition.

Mathematicians might like it I don t The explanations are clumsy and not elucidating No matter how smart the speaker might think oneself, the proof lies in the ability to convey information to a diverse audience with various backgrounds in a clear and concise way Effectively Or, put another way Explain it to me like I know nothing For a first course , this book does the job poorly.My kid s high school text does a better job with every single one of these concepts better.

This was the assigned textbook for my probability course It s a great read with a lot of quality examples in the text It didn t feel like it was jumping to conclusions, and it builds a good theoretical background for the conclusions it draws.

6. Linden Linden says:

There are many good, challenging problems in this book such as ___, ___, ___ and ____ TO UPDATE LATER.I m taking off one star though, because some of the proofs were unrigorous such as some of the moment generating function stuff and ___ TO UPDATE LATER.

The best book on probability theory

Every time reading it Always new.

An introductory text in probability As far as probability goes for most people, this book will be useful Indeed, this is the recommended textbook to study for the first actuarial examination The book is rich in examples and exercises that, as usual with probability, make you feel like playing games.On the personal side, I regard this book high because it was the one used as the base to evaluate access to the graduate program in Statistics at the University of S o Paulo.
