Hello all!

I have sort of a weird question / request.

I'll be taking Mathematical Statistics I and II come Sept and I really want to brush up on some areas. I've already done some reading into the subject and I've identified my weaknesses and was hoping to get some help or direction with specifically with integration and associated properties of common densities.

To be more clear, take the Gamma density for example. It's daunting. I'm a bit rusty in integral calculus and will most likely have problems with questions that require the integration of such densities to find probabilities, show results and perform transformations.

So, what I'm asking is whether or not someone has a DOC/PDF/course lecture or some kind of aid that I can use to get acquainted with the calculus of common probability densities.

I was able to locate this document: http://www.docstoc.com/docs/2583168/Stat-134-Fall-2008-A-Adhikari-GAMMA-DENSITIES-STEP-BY-STEP

I'd really appreciate if anyone had a resource that takes this kind of approach: step-by-step.

I know it's a bit of a weird question, but I'm confident that this is indeed a weakness in my education that I'd like to improve. I've tried googling a ton of queries and have only turned up a small amount of useful results.

TIA
