I agree with Krishanu. I've been using Stata for over a year now, but I basically started with a copy of Stata 8, googled for help files (found a good pdf by Svend Juul) to help with the basics. Necessity also played a large part- I learnt the commands for the types of regressions, graphs etc that I needed without knowing too much of the background programming - or the stats. I can't yet write commands either as I haven't needed to, but I've now googled for more help files on stata programming...

Hallo Dr. Cox I am very new to Stata. I just have learnt to use it during the months of April - June of this year (2007). Here is how I did it. I got hold of a copy of Stata 9. Then I googled for "introduction to Stata+pdf" and phrases like that, which resulted in a lot of downloadable pdf files containing a lot of introductory information. One of my friends had also done something like that and I got some materials from him as well. Then I kept on reading those materials and practiced them on stata, This game me some idea about how stata works and all that. Once I had some idea i searched for the stata reference manuals in the library and refered to them a little bit. After that I got a few projects where I could use Stata. And now I can use Stata a little bit (of course I cannot yet write commands like those experienced people who contribute to SSC).
