Although other people in my department say they don't like this book (including the professor), I really like its treatment of probability theory. The statistics part is okay, not that impressive.

This book has a bad habit of overly complicating relatively simple ideas (the entire chapter on estimation, for example), and under explaining some of the more difficult ideas (the section on the Gamma distribution is just horrendous). The examples in the book seem to be chosen and expressed starting with the assumption that the reader is already quite familiar with the subject. The exercises with solutions, (odds) are much too simple, while the rest are quite difficult, making self-learning very difficult. Highly frustrating.

The sixth edition of Math. Statistics w/ Applications is a solid book with good information. However, the form of presentation was not for me. The authors have chosen an explicative style which tends to be overly wordy.
When I begin to read a chapter, I tend to get frustrated and impatient because they either try to show you all the subtleties at once or give you a long-ass paragraph that can be said with one sentence. Thus, The most important stuff is buried in a mountain of over-whelming text.
I have ditched this book in favor of Ghahramani's "Fundamentals of Probability, Second Edition" for my Math Stat I class.

I had to use this text for my Stat Theory classes. This book is very frustrating in that it fails to mention some very useful theorems. Example: A problem from Ch. 3 asks: If Y is a random variable with moment-generating function m(t), and if W is given by W = aY + b, show that the m.g.f. of W is e^(tb)*m(at). In the section containing this problem, two theorems are omitted, one of which states that if X and Y are indep. random variables having m.g.f.'s Mx(t) and My(t), respectively, then Mx+y(t) = Mx(t)*My(t).

Would have been nice to know this while trying to write the proof since one might not know this theorem and assume that Mx+y(t) = Mx(t) + My(t). You run into this situation again and again in this book, whereas you can buy a Schaum's Outline of Probability and Statistics for about 1/6th the price and it has this theorem. If you need to buy this book, I recommend Schaum's which also has a lot more worked problems to study. This book is another example of old professors writing a bad text to make themselves feel smarter than students who are 30 years younger then them and can't rediscover well-known theorems in their spare time.

Overall, a good book. Could be a better even after excluding minor details- the ones noticed mentioned below.

Background necessary: Calculus- especially Taylor series, Integration by parts, solving for areas by integration and figuring out their limits; Even with a sufficient background, some proofs are quite rigorous or not well written enough, not sure which sometimes.

Comments based on first 7 Chapters of the book:
Standard deviation- excellently described
Relative frequency- NOT very well described. Makes sense on looking at chart in the book, but readers may forget to look at chart. A good definition for this important term is needed.
p. 43 They mention multinomial expansion before binomial distribution 1 chapter later. Very unnecessary, and doesn't make sense for the general reader to just stick it in there. It's like trying to squeeze information just to try to put something mathematically interesting that is more of a hinderance for learning permutations, combinations, and the multiplication rule. They show it to try to combine the principles together, but to make any sense of the multinomial expansion, besides choosing numbers to do it out, the proof to understand it fully is graduate level mathematics. A big no no for the book!! The least the book could do is expand by showing a specific example of this, and maybe even the proof itself, or just not mention it at all.

Section 2.7, p. 50 intro- too wordy. "relative frequencey of occurrence" in parentheses should probably be taken out for less confusion since a rel. freq. does not have to be based on a conditional probability occurring. Leaving it in leaves the reader at possible ambiguity.
Section 2.9, p. 62 Unnecessarily complicated- 1/5 * 3/4 = answer makes a lot more sense than them breaking it down into an unnecessary 7+ steps = answer.
Binomial Theorem probably could've been presented better. The idea of the binomial expansion and definition 3.7 (binomial distribution theorem) should be explained together right after definition 3.6 (explanation of a binomial experiment) rather than confusing the reader and leaving it off until later on.
p. 102-104 The book does a good job relating some word problems to the real world in good, brief explanations.
p.152 Step function should show hollow points if not the filled end points as well at least- too sloppy.
p. 172 Example 4.9 well done, but makes it sound like = (y- u)/o was intuitively obvious even to the beginner. The book tends to introduce some examples like this to introduce a theory. Just something one needs to get used to. It would be nice if they were able to put a sentence on page 1 about how some conecepts are inrtoduced by example first, but of course not everyone would read it anyway.
p. 188, sec. 4.8- great summary explaining existence for variety of statistical models
Example 5.1, p. 212- not a very good example. The table's correlation to the sample space given is overly ambiguous. Example is confusing, especially since they use the starting point starting from the top right corner instead of the top left corner and show no indication of what stands for what without reader figuring it out. Poorly set up.
p.213 typo- 6/9, not 8/9- tricky to figure out for a beginner
p.225 calculation- just add "= 1" to show solving of one of the integrals. Book sloppily leaves out this simple, but crucial step. A hard read for beginners to notice.
"degrees of freedom (d.f.)" can probably be better and simply defined than the book's "attempts," such as always one less than number of trials or something like that rather than always showing d.f. by notation only.

It's quite arguable if maybe just normal, or normal and t distributions and then central limit theorem should be mentioned in the book first, rather than throwing in all the different kinds of distributions in to learn for Chapter 3 first.

I used this book in graduate school for a statistics course. It was very hard to understand and I hope your professor uses a different book.
