Practice Probability Word Problems November 8, 2012 11:55 AMSubscribe

What great books or resources are there for practicing probability word problems such as for standardized tests like the GRE?

I have a difficult time deciphering the wording in probability problems, and need basic/intermediate practice problems. It should cover concepts such as when to multiple or add probabilities, conditional probability, independent and mutually exclusive events, etc. It can't be overly basic either (ie: probably not Khan Academy).

Schaum's outline seems like a great choice, but the reviews on amazon say its full of mistakes which I cannot have when learning.

Princeton Review GRE materials worked fine for me for the test, if you want to check the amazon reviews for them too. posted by zeek321 at 12:02 PM on November 8, 2012

Of all the GRE review books I bought, the Princeton Review ones were the most helpful. Barron's GRE got used some. Kaplan's went in the trash - it didn't add any value beyond what the other 2 did. posted by zug at 12:08 PM on November 8, 2012

My GRE study materials are covered. I really need practice probability word problems. I only mention the GRE as a rough guide for the types of word problems I am looking for. posted by Mr. Papagiorgio at 12:15 PM on November 8, 2012
