A Modern Introduction to Probability and Statistics: Understanding Why and How

3.77  ·  Rating details ·  43 ratings  ·  6 reviews
Probability and Statistics are studied by most science students. Many current texts in the area are just cookbooks and, as a result, students do not know why they perform the methods they are taught, or why the methods work.

A decent book which strikes the right balance between formulas and explanations. The text is sufficient without being too verbose. Recommended.

This has become one of my favorite statistics book. It consists of 28 chapters on specific topics (e.g., Central Limit Theorem) and includes topics that are unusual in most statistics book. Some of the material is calculus-based, making this text somewhat like a mathematical statistics book. I wouldn't recommend this as someone's introduction to statistics although it might be OK as a supplement to another book. The chapters are short and focus on the big picture.

I worked my way through this book, doing many of the exercises, to get (re)aquainted with the subject. When you put in the work it goes a long way in explaining quite a large amount of both probability and statistics.
