A book for probability

Hello,

I recommend you a book on probability: http://www.dartmouth.edu/~chance/teaching_aids/books_articles/probability_book/book.html
It has a nice practical approach.

Re: A book for probability

Hi gAr;

That is a good book.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
