Textbook:  David S. Moore, Basic Practice of Statistics, 5th edition (jigsaw pieces on cover). WHFreeman.
One copy is on closed reserve in Long Library & one in the Math Clinic, but you'll need your own.  New, it comes with a CD in the back which may be useful  if you don't have good internet connectivity (e.g. live off campus).  If you're buying used and the cd is stated to be there, get that if it's the same price.   (If you get one without cd, and need one, tell me; we'll make it happen.) 
Put your name in it!
