    Any resources you can recommend? Preferably online but I'm not against stopping by the library if need be. Thank you.

    It is commendable that you want ot learn this for yourself, however, there are many resources and without knowing your difficulties or context it is not possible to make a good suggestion.

    If you are learning from scratch - then any introductory probability and statistics text will do the trick. You are looking for "hypothesis testing".

    I take it you've seen this one:

    How about something like this?
