1. Murray R. Spiegel, John Schiller, and R. Alu Srinivasan, Probability and Statistics, Schaum's Outlines, 2nd ed. (New York: McGraw-Hill, 2000).

Covers all the essentials for probability and statistics - and more. It is compact. Candidates should not memorize formulas of distributions but should understand when it is appropriate to use a particular type of distribution.
