This is a very thorough resource for many statistical and probability concepts. I liked the probability calculations especially for beginning statistics/probability students. The hypothesis tests seemed a little complicated for beginning statistics students. I probably would not use this in my classroom, but I might point out this resource to my students in my probability class for homework help.

Technical Remarks:

Some of the instructions were a little hard to follow (like on the conditional probability section). I used Firefox and tried many of the links, and they all seemed to work fine.
Time spent reviewing site: 15 minutes.
