Understanding Probability: Chance Rules in Everyday Life

4.0 out of 5 stars great book, Dec 1 2005
This is the book for understanding and learning probability! I used this lively introduction to probability in class and I found it a pleasure to read it. The challenging problems and the way they are tackled using computer simulations before providing analytic solutions, gave the students a lot of insights. Also the key concepts and ideas from probability theory are treated in a very clear way. I wished I had seen this book before.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great exercise book, Sept. 25 2005
This book has many exercises with answers/solutions to each and every exercise covering a wide range of topics from probability. The book, however, should be used along with an appropriate probability textbook. An excellent companion to Hsu's book is the introductory text by Henk Tijms. This book contains many worked-out examples and exercises as well, but also explains why probability works and how it can be applied in practice. As engineering student, I learned a lot by using both books.
