Definitely recommended

This book by Steven Taylor is a well-constructed guide and excellent in every dimension. Probability is a complex and important field of study that is widely used in different scientific areas such as mathematics, finance, computer science, game theory, statistics, physics, gambling, philosophy, and artificial intelligence. Probability theory is also used to describe the regularities and underlying mechanics of complex systems. The author discusses all the important details about Probability including its history, fundamentals, and interpretations. It also discusses the explanation of permutations and combinations, Probability Using Permutations and Combinations, Urn problems, probability and lottery, probability and gambling, probability applications. The book is very clear, concise, and presented in an intuitive way. It is a really nice course that gives you a nice overview of Probability with Permutations. It's very straightforward and easy to comprehend. I enjoyed this book and it gave me some good advice. I will surely recommend it to anyone.

Extremely useful

This course was definitely valuable to me. I'm really happy I found this course. The material is presented very clearly, precisely, and deep. No unnecessary talks, just theoretical concepts, followed by examples.

Steve was super knowledgeable about different topics in Probability with Permutations and Combinations and had many different examples that showed the intricacies in analyzing how to solve problems. He provides simple words with all possible ways of executing something. He uses examples to help make learning the concept easier.

By far one of the best courses I had. I was struggling in some graduate-level stats and probability courses and this made everything make sense.

This is a great book for students studying for general tests like the SAT, where a bit of probability is needed. Great course with smooth and easy to follow/understand approach.

I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for probability with permutations and combinations. Thank you for this incredible resource.

Truly love it

I truly love this book. It is a quick refresher on probability with permutations and combinations. I'd recommend it for programmers and business people who have been out of school for a while need to review this concept to understand algorithms used in their prescriptive analytics software which are based on searching through combinations and permutations.

After I listened to this book, I would say that this is one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to. I always thought probability with permutations and combinations is difficult because of many mathematical expressions, now I realized that they are very fun. All formulas were expressed in an elaborative way by Steven, the examples were solid to help understand the concept.

Throughout the course, he brought up great examples which were easy to understand and I could follow his explanations and calculations pretty well and have. The example problems are thoroughly explained. I liked the way the course is structured. The explanations given were awesome.

In-depth and thorough

After I listened to this book and keep on listening over and over again, I found out that this book will let you learn continuous probability theory. You will also learn how to predict the results of continuous random events and how to predict how much on average the actual results would deviate from your estimate. This book is for you if you are looking for an efficient way to learn or review probability.

Exactly what I needed

This is exactly what I needed. It starts to fill the gap between knowing the basic equations of permutations and combinations and then trying to apply them to real examples which quickly gets tricky. It is clearly written with good practical examples to understand and follow

Great for beginners

I am currently pursuing a master's in analytics and statistics is of course a pre-requisite for the program. This was a great class to learn statistics someone new or it was a great class for someone needing to refresh their knowledge and/or fill in the gaps. With this guide, no more struggle, highly skilled problems of permutation, combination, and probability will no longer bother you. The book covers the basic concept and definitions of probability and how to calculate probabilities in a variety of random and simple situations. Steven's method of explaining to refresh complex ideas is amazing. It far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend it for anyone learning the fundamentals of probability and combinations. Excellent indeed!
