I am just now reading Vittinghoff E, et al. Regression Methods in Biostatistics. Purchased from Stata corp website. I like it a lot. It has problems at the end of each chapter. Data sets are available for download.

I would also recommend Hills M and DeStavola BL, A Short Introduction to Stata 8 for Biostatistics. Also available from Stata corp web site. Has problems at the end of each chapter, and a CD-ROM in the back of the book.

Dear Authors of Stata Books,

I have a complaint about introductory Stata books. Recently, I have
been searching for "intro to Stata" books to teach masters level
students how to use Stata. Of the two intro books at Stata's book
store none had EXERCISES to reinforce concepts. Why should I buy a
book and create my own exercises? I feel cheated.
