Hey folks,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need a good intro to statistics book that will take me through the'statistics equivalent'of a Cal I, II and III course (US). One that starts with a good foundation, and proceeds up to a pretty advanced level.

I have just finished aPhD in physics, so my math is'good', but I've somehow managed to avoid all but the most basic of stats, and when I've needed it I've 'learned' it to get me through a problem, then hastily forgotten it again.

Anyway, I am now moving into thequantitative analytics field (finance)and so need agood solid stats foundation.

I'm sure there are loads of books out there, but I'm looking for some personal recommendations from PF phriends.

Thanks!

Spock
