I'm a Computer Science sophomore and we're studying Probability and Statistics (fundamentals and all). The teacher recommends a book which I don't like since it does not even try and explain everything.

So, can you recommend me a few great books on Probability and Statistics and if such exists, with an accent on Computer Science?

The book Introduction to Probability by Bertsekas seems good.

There is a nice compiled list here. The WEKA book is also a great resource to own.

Use this book : Probability Theory: The Logic of Science

This is one of the best, enjoyable and engaging books on probability.

While reading it, you may feel that the writer is talking to you in person.
