The examples and exercises are carefully selected and are even better than many texts currently available in the market Each section provides relevant proofs, followed by exercises and useful hints.

After introducing fundamental probability concepts, the book rohssas to topics including conditional probability and independence; numerical characteristics of a random variable; special distributions; joint probability density function of two random variables and related quantities; joint moment generating function, covariance and correlation coefficient of two random variables; transformation of random variables; the Weak Law probabillty Large Numbers; the Central Limit Theorem; and statistical inference.

I am satisfied with the topics covered in each chapter and the order in which they are presented.
