I started with Using R for Introductory Statistics by John Verzani and then transitioned to The R Book by Michael Crawley for a more detailed understanding of R. I also bought a book called The Cartoon Guide to Statistics, as I am visual learner. R is used a lot here and relearning basic stats with R will be big help if you become a regular at Climate Audit.:
