There are online pages (http://homes.msi.ucsb.edu/~byrnes/rtutorial.html is a good one), but a good textbook is probably better. It's a bit old, but I still recommend Fowler et al. (1998) for those who are starting out with statistical testing: Fowler J, Cohen L & Jarvis P (1998). Practical statistics for field biology (2nd ed.). Wiley, Chichester, UK.

In the field of psychology one recommendation is (still) also: 
Hays, W. L. (1994). Statistics. Belmont, CA: Wadsworth. Depending 
on your German skills (if at all) THE Bortz could be a good 
textbook, Bortz, J. (2005). Statistik für Human- und 
Sozialwissenschaftler (6. Aufl). Berlin: Springer.

Good luck, *S*
