Probability

Sources For Probability

Let me start by telling why I wrote this article. While preparing for ISI, CMI I faced problems when faced with probability concepts like Independent events,Dependent events,Bayes Theorem and other related topics. Over time I learnt these topics and gained enough knowledge to do tough problems in these topics. I will be providing various sources so that you, my readers will be benefited.

  • Discrete Probability by Hugh Gordon

This book was recommended by B.J.Venkatachala sir. It explains everything from basics and is a good read for beginners. The Random Variables chapter and parts thereof can be ignored. Link to the book is given below,
