After taking a look at the book's ToC at Amazon, I see that it's too
advanced for my course. It looks at only the mathematical side and not
any Descriptive or Inferential stat. Yet I'll also need Probability in
the course. Is there any good textbook that contains all the topics
mentioned above? Thanks.
