 Currently in a MS in Statistics program. This website is definitely on my favorites now. I've been collecting class-contained resources before my start of the program next semester. Here they are, in order of depth/difficulty of the subject:http://ocw.uci.edu/courses/math_131b_introduction_to_probabi...
 If you're going to do any random processes, the graduate course (and corresponding textbook) from EECS at MIT is great: https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-compu...
 Before this becomes one of the many ignored bookmarks in my Favorites folder, can anyone tell me how useful this resource is to a self-ascribed mathematical lightweight as myself?I took calc BC back in high school and now I'm 31. I realize to a certain extent that many things I believe today are based on a rudimentary understanding of probability theory. Aren't all clinical trials, scientific studies, etc, validated by that 95% confidence interval? And I notice that whenever something happens and my human nature wants draw a conclusion of causality, that cold, rational part of my brain tells me to wait until I have more data.Anyway I'd love to get into what I feel might be the most fundamental mathematical concept. Probability theory might be our modern day religion.
 Without looking at your name it only took me about 3 paragraphs to figure out who had written this. I'm glad this particular post drew one of your long responses.
 Thank you, seconded. Amazing writeup.
 Holy shit, thanks for taking the time to write up all that.
 Can anyone comment on how this compares to MIT 6.041x Introduction to probability [1]I started that course a few years ago, but never finished, but really liked it. Wondering if they cover the same, if I should do both, or one instead of the other.
 Oh, awesome, I'm in the equivalent of this class right now.Hopefully this means I can pass...
 This book makes for a nice example of embedding applets and hyperlinked definitions within the prose of the text.(Didn't look too carefully at the content, but it looks good too.)
 This is a wonderful resource and I come back to it for some courses quite often.
 this is one of the most comprehensive treatments of the subject I've found. Also works great as a reference/hand book
