Matthias Vallentin, a computer science PhD student at UC Berkeley, has published a **Probability and Statistics Cookbook**. The book can be freely downloaded in PDF format via the website. Also, the latex source is available on Github. Matthias states that others are free to fork the source and make changes.

The book is not a textbook. It is more of a *cheatsheet*. It contains many of the common probability and statistics techniques and the associated formula. I would consider this book to be an excellent resource to have around.
