Okay.
Yes, that book has a good collection of problems!

Good! I am glad you had no problems. What made you choose that probability book and is it the third edition?

### Re: Is this cool with you?

That probability book is the fourth edition. I wanted a book on probability, it looked better among the books there.
Do you know of any other books which you enjoyed?

Learning at our own pace is the way to learn!
I wish that there's a way to find whether a particular problem has been solved already! Current search engines are bad at that task!

Who could? I like the OEIS best. Generate a sequence and then find the generating function already done for you.
