Prob/Stats Is Probability by David Morin a good book?

  1. Mar 15, 2017 #1
    I had taken probability before but not in depth and I want to learn it again. Is David Morin's book good for a intermediate learner ? I don't want to waste time on easy stuff.

    The reviews are good but popular science books tend to omit proofs instead they just state the theorems and have easy problems. I don't want to buy a book like that rather I would like to have a book that is rigorous and have hard problems.

    Is David Morin's book fits my criteria ?

    Problem solved.

    I can tell you that you will waste time on easy stuff with that book, considering you are an intermediate learner. It even seems popular science but it has some challenging problems. I'd rather try another book.

    Which book you suggest about probability ?

    A First Look at Rigorous Probability Theory 2e by Jeffrey S. Rosenthal is probably more your speed. It's the most introductory text I know of on measure theoretic probability theory. It does assume you know everything about probability that's normally taught in an undergraduate intro to statistics course.
