Zar has always been my go-to reference for statistics. The book covers everything from distributional statistics and description to survival probabilities and above. As computer statistics programs have grown more user friendly, it's often tempting to disregard pen, paper, and reference book altogether. But I always double check with Zar; first to check I'm using the right tests, second to check critical steps in calculation to try and figure what went right or wrong. Best of all, Zar contains numerous and straight forward examples carried through in detail with which you can often cheat, and just plug your numbers into the supplied complete laid out equations. It's a very good book for learning statistics, and a great book for applying them.
