Review:

the first seven chapters can be used as one term undergraduate course in probability. I am satisfied with the topics covered in each chapter and the order in which they are presented. Numerous solved examples and exercises are provided in each chapter. They support concepts well, and they are of high quality. The examples and exercises are carefully selected and are even better than many texts currently available in the marketI would be happy to adopt this book. -Subash Bagui Univ of West Florida "I feel this book covers the topics better and in a more easy to understand way with the conversational tone. There are a lot more examples and I like that the exercises are not too technologically dependent. I would definitely adopt this for my Intro Probability course. The first eight chapters are a perfect fit. -Pat Goeters Auburn University
