The perfect companion to our 'Statistics Demystified,' this book explains all the basic concepts of probability using common devices such as coins, cards, and dice to effortlessly educate readers.

From the Back Cover:

DON'T ROLL THE DICE LEARNING PROBABILITY!

Now anyone who ever flipped a coin, played cards, or placed a bet can grasp the principles that govern probability -- without formal training, unlimited time, or an Einstein IQ. In Probability Demystified, experienced math instructor Allan Bluman provides an illuminating and entertaining way to master chance, odds, and predictability.

With Probability Demystified, you learn the subject one simple step at a time -- at your own speed. This unique, self-teaching guide offers problems at the end of each chapter and section to pinpoint weaknesses, and a 60-question "final exam" to reinforce the entire book.

If you have basic math and a little algebra, you can master probability. This fast and entertaining self-teaching course makes it fun and easy to:

  • Learn probability theory with examples using familiar items such as coins, cards, and dice
  • Discover how actuaries predict the likelihood of events
  • Play games of chance with deeper understanding
  • Construct a solid foundation for statistics
  • Be better prepared for standardized tests
  • Take a "final exam" and grade it yourself!

Simple enough for beginners and students but always challenging, Probability Demystified is the most interesting self-teaching tool or brush-up you can find!
