Best way to re-learn statistics? Enough that I wouldn't be lost in an advanced, fairly data-intensive psychology class. I took the course at Ga. Tech some years ago, but my old textbook is sooo boring and awful.

I'd love a shiny skinny book with actual math that was relatively easy to follow. I'm hoping to review over Christmas break. Book is better than web site.
Naturally I've forgotten most of calculus already, too, but will re-learn if needed. Can anyone offer any guidance?
I seem to remember that the stats class I took was mostly memorizing what different terms / distributions meant. I want to know more than "a coefficient of correlation ranges from -1 to +1".
No, I haven't searched Amazon yet, but I'm hoping there's a better selection process for me than reading endless reviews there. Thank you!
