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.
