a concise yet thorough treatment
This fourth edition of A First Course in Probability provides concise proofs of theorems and jumps right into explained examples, both theoretical and tangible. The writing style of Ross is formal and academic but understandable and approachable to a struggling person like myself. One great tidbit if I may call it that is the program in "basic"? for computing the binomial distribution function. I wonder if simulation is one of his specialties or something. Would have liked to have bought a later edition if my situation had permitted it but this book has proven very useful for study and reference all the same. SOA seems to like recommending this author and I can see why.
