I'm independently studying stat. The book I'm using is DeGroot & Schervish 3e. I think it's pretty decent for the most part. However, there is no solutions manual available that covers all the problems in the book. Further, as I was searching on amazon for the solution manual, I found many reviews of D&S 3e indicating that it is not particularly good as an introductory text. Given that I can't even buy a solution manual to D&S to aid my study, I'm wondering whether I should just switch over to another book and accompanying solution manual that is more appropriate for a beginner. Thoughts and suggestions are appreciated.
