    might be round about, but
    probability for risk management, edition 1 or 2

    has just about ALL those topics listed and i learned very well from it, I prefer to learn from application so this was great for me (still provides same foundation as traditional stats/prob book)....this book is used to study/learn for exam 1p for actuarial exam set.

    check it out a your library if possible,
