I have just finished self-studying my way through Mathematical Statistics with Applications, 5th Ed., by Wackerly, Mendenhall, and Scheaffer. I read every word, and solved every problem (well over 1k). I couldn't possibly have done it without all your help here on Stats.SE. Especially big shout-out to whuber and Spätzle. Thank you!

    $\begingroup$ Exciting! 1k problems are a lot, and over that is more than a lot! $\endgroup$ Jan 11 at 7:43

    $\begingroup$ That's quite an effort. Where next? Volume I of Kendall and Stuart? :) ... I did so many exercises out of that. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Glen_b What's next is Linear Models in R, 2nd Ed., by Julian J. Faraway. I'm basically self-studying my way to a B.S. in Statistics, and I'm loosely following Virginia Tech's curriculum, if not their book choices. After Linear Models, I want to do analysis and design of experiments. $\endgroup$ Jan 13 at 3:15

    $\begingroup$ Studying linear models is a good choice at that point, yes. $\endgroup$
