|Any suggestions for learning basic statistics and probability (and beyond, but need a decent base first :-)?|
Preferably, any material that uses R or something student-friendly (read: free or student license) would be extra credit.
Motivation: don't want to take year long stats courses in college that don't use stats software.
EDIT: Just to make the experience fruitful, I am aware of OCW, this (http://www.math.gatech.edu/~cain/textbooks/onlinebooks.html), etc... But, which materials in here or elsewhere are helpful?
