View Full Version : Probability - where to start?

Simple, stupid question - does anyone have a link or a book suggestion where I can re-learn how to figure probability. College stats was a looong time ago.

(I was a good math student I swear - I just don't use it at all anymore.)

Thanks in advance.

For a former math student of calculus level, I'd recommend the textbook Probability and Statistics by Morris H. DeGroot. It is clearly written, with half the book on probability, and half on statistical estimation theory, the latter of which is useful for estimating your EV and standard deviation, and understanding your results. It goes from basic material to some which is quite advanced.
