#### A classic Schaum's Outline, thoroughly updated to match the latest course scope and sequence. The ideal review for the thousands of college students who enroll in Probability courses.

**About the Book**

An update of this successful outline in probability, modified to conform to the current curriculum. Schaum’s Outline of Probability mirrors the course in scope and sequence to help enrolled students understand basic concepts and offer extra practice on topics such as finite and countable sets, binomial coefficients, axioms of probability, conditional probability, expectation of a finite random variable, Poisson distribution, and probability of vectors and Stochastic matrices. Coverage will also include finite Stochastic and tree diagrams, Chebyshev’s Inequality and the Law of Large Numbers, calculations of binomial probabilities using the normal approximation, and regular Markov processes & stationary state distributions.
