For many distributions (such as normal and poisson) that I have been learning for Exam P, i use the tables they offer in the book because they tell us too. Do they give you the tables on the exam?

You will only be given a normal distribution table for Exam P (this is the table that, given a z-score, gives you the probability that X is less than or equal to the z-score). As far I as can tell, that's all you will be given.

Since Poisson is a discrete distribution, it shouldn't be too hard to do once you burn the formula into your memory
