This MSDN article is pretty well written with examples:

[Update]

Here are a couple more links:

http://packetlife.net/blog/2010/jun/7/understanding-tcp-sequence-acknowledgment-numbers/[^]
Scroll down to the section titled "Sequence and Acknowledgment Numbers"

This one's good too:

that article doesn't explain how the sequencing works (i.e how the sequence number is chosen how it is incremented depending on the size of the data etc..)
