I have just completed another class where the second half of the text was used for the the course. I have painstakingly tried to read this book hoping to better understand.
There are some subjects the book explains fine.
However there are a large amount of subjects that the book actually seems to move too quickly through. Skipping parts to their examples, skipping explanations at times and failing to mention that their examples may only pertain to a very particular kind of problem.
The authors also have written the methods to doing certain types of problems in ways that almost make no sense, partially due to poor use of symbols within the equations. I used this book to try and do my homework and I would use the examples as a guide, it proved to be a mistake, those problems I often had to do over again after talking with my instructor.
If you have no choice but to use this textbook I recommend finding some supplemental materials when a topic seems to not make much sense that might help you understand a little better. Get a book on probability and one on statistics and definitely do not hesitate to speak to your instructors if things get confusing because this textbook just is not good enough on its own for comfortable understanding of probability and statistical theory methods.
