Differentiating between different distributions
In my last 3 statistics classes I have learned about several different kinds of distributions:
the binomial probability distribution
the normal probability distribution
I am findng it difficult absorbing all this information regarding distributions at once and have not yet come across a book which attempts to differentiate between these different types of distributions. I would greatly appreciate advice regarding any/ all of the following:
key differences of the distributions
how calculations dealing with the different distributions differ
Thanks in advance.
