Richard's right, but I am usually surprised that most recommendations
overlook what is to me the most obvious and the most instructive
single source.

[U] starts very easy and gets more difficult in a well graded way. But
Margaret's question seems to imply someone not a beginner in
statistics, just in Stata, and [U] is ideal for such person. Numerous
users seem to determined to slow themselves down by Googling
everything when the richest resource is bundled on the language within
Stata.
