Outstanding especially for students with rusty probability skills!

I am taking a grad school class dealing with lots of Probability Distribution Models and concepts - and it has been a few years - okay a few DECADES since I first was exposed to these concepts. My prof was busy racing through lecture slides at the "Kleinrock" level of probability detail, and my eyes were glazed over and I was lost. Probability for Dummies has quickly allowed me to catch up with my prof, and now feel confident again about the concepts my prof assumed I knew with perfect recall from long, long ago. If you need consise and well written explanations of probability concepts such as pdfs, cdfs, probability distribution models, the Central Limit Theorem, etc. this book is a great help. This book is extremely 'student friendly' in that the author offers many coaching tips and comments for students from her wealth of experience as a teacher of Probability classes. Excellent book for for those looking for a quick refresher of Probability concepts!

For a brush-up on that learned so long ago, or as a friendly comprehendible introduction

This book is well-written, and provides very easily understandable examples for all topics discussed. As an introductory book, you will not be disappointed. The author presents the topics in a clear and concise manner, and importantly, doesn't explain concepts entirely with mathematical formulas (something I have noticed is quite common for graduate level probability and statistics textbooks). I highly recommend this book for those beginning to grasp the concept of probability and statistics. Or, like me, someone who needed a little brush-up on this very useful subject matter.

Excellent introduction for the subject of Probability

"Probability for Dummies" is an excellent book for students who are new to the subject of probability. It is easy to read, witty and very informative. This book would also serve as a fine review for students with previous experience in probability and statistics as well, for it deals with subject matter relative to both (in fact, the author makes references to another of her books, "Statistics for Dummies"). Highly recommended!


Very useful common sense approach to subject. Recommended to students taking intreoductory course in the subject.


This book is an excellent introduction to the field of probability. It does not go into higher level mathematical theory, but presents the subject in easy to understand language and sticks to areas of practical application.
