On tests and the final exam you will be provided with tables and, when appropriate, Student-T table.
Example for the Student-T table: If T has 3 degrees of freedom then P(T<2.353)=0.95 and P(|T|<2.353) = 0.9.

Recommended, fun, and accessible general reading about probability: Struck by Lightning by J.S. Rosenthal, and The Improbability Principle by D.J. Hand.
