Basic Concepts of Probability and Statistics

by J. L. Hodges and E. L. Lehmann

This is a very nice introduction to probability and statistics. The authors do a great job of introducing both simple and complex concepts. Readers unfamiliar with this book can see what others have said here.

To learn this material as well as possible I worked through a great number of the book's statements and expanded (with further detail) upon anything that was unclear to me at the time. You can find the material I had time to write up by following the links on this page.

Update (2013-08-25): After years of giving this material away for free I've decided to try to sell it on Amazon. Please look here for the most recent version of the solution manual.

As always, I am interested in hearing about any errors that might exist in this material.
