This was the required text for my applied probability class and the professor had to regularly provide the class with other writings and excerpts. This book is extremely difficult to read after the first 2-3 chapters. If you're a seasoned math student, you *might* do OK, but my class really struggled with this one. Some of my criticisms:

* The author has a bad habit of skipping "obvious" steps when laying out equations.
* Sometimes a formula interjected out of the blue without any explanation for where it might have come from.
* The chapters are very long without enough progressive problems throughout. Most texts nowadays have 5-15 pages, then problems. This text had 40 pages or so then problems. There's just not enough intermediate steps to confirm your comprehension.
* Severely lacking in diagrams; and some that are provided just aren't that good. For the cost, this was disappointing.

I would've given this book one star if it was just for the 3 chapters our class focused on, but the other 2 we covered weren't so hard to follow.

It might be the material itself, but this book is so dry and hard to understand. The questions it asks are tough, and when you try to find examples in the book, there are none to be found. Also, good luck finding a solutions manual for this thing, because I've tried and failed many times.
