Problem Intensive books on Probability

  1. May 6, 2012 #1
    Hello All,

    I am enrolled in a third year probability course, and the course text book is Introduction to Probability Models by Sheldon Ross. I want to do good in this course, and this course is the hardest course in third year stats. Therefore, I am studying from Ross right now, but would appreciate if you could give me the names of other books that are on par with Ross and much more problem-intensive, since the theory is already being covered in Ross. However, I do not mind a theory intensive book as long as it is problem intensive as well, and on par with Introduction to Probability Models.

    Hi kamran60.

    These books have a good selection of (classical) problems:

    "An introduction to Probability Theory and Its Applications", Vol. I and Vol.II by William Feller.
