Praise from Reviewers:
“I think Ross has done an admirable job of covering the breadth of applied probability. Ross writes fantastic problems which really force the students to think divergently...The examples, like the exercises are great.
- Matt Carlton, California Polytechnic Institute
“This is a fascinating introduction to applications from a variety of disciplines. Any curious student will love this book."
- Jean LeMaire, University of Pennsylvania
“This book may be a model in the organization of the education process. I would definitely rate this text to be the best probability models book at its level of difficulty...far more sophisticated and deliberate than its competitors.
- Kris Ostaszewski, University of Illinois

As for this book itself, the first two chapters are pretty quick, cut, and dry. They cover the material necessary and adequately for later sections with no real B.S., but sometimes it can feel a little too dry (which is why I recommend a stronger background first).
Chapter 3 is perhaps the most important chapter in the book. I can not stress enough the importance of mastering the concepts in chapter 3 - conditioning is by far the most important problem solving technique in this book.
Tons of good exercises ranging from easy to very hard, and starred exercises have detailed solutions in the back.
The book combined theory and applications. It's a imprescindible for those studying engineering or sciences and professionals.
