Everything you wanted to know about Data Analysis and Fitting
by Peter Young
Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 55

I try to make clear what is being calculated, what assumptions are being made, and to give a derivation of results rather than just quote them. The aim is put a lot useful pedagogical material together in a convenient place.
