What is your background? I find examples that are in terms of things
I am intuitively familiar with to be much more helpful, though as you
learn more this becomes less important.
I found this to be a decent general intro (if you can find it):
Introduction to Linear Regression Analysis by Montgomery and Peck
Though, I haven't looked through much else along these lines. Maybe
others have ideas.
Undergrad/ Masters level texts for econometrics are usually
Stock and Watson's Introduction to Econometrics
Wooldridge's Introductory Econometrics: A Modern Approach
I prefer the latter but just my opinion.
