I have always found learning statistics to be hard without seeing examples, and taking for granted the answer. I am looking for a book that teaches statistics that fits my criteria below or comes close to it:
- teaches statistics using sample data,
- the statistical results is shown via calculations, and not my having to guess how the result was arrived,
- exercises that uses sample data along with detailed solutions, and not just an answer,
- calculations can use programming code, but not with proprietary software such as SAS, or MATLAB.
If anyone has come across such a book, that would be great.
