2 New to R? Start here

If you’re new to R and want to learn how to use it, this library might be a little daunting.

There’s so much choice!

If you aren’t sure where to start, then try one of these two options:

2.0.1 Book: R for Data Science

This book is an excellent introduction to R programming and gets you started with visualizing data so you see some exciting stuff, and the power of R, right away.

The book is free to read at https://r4ds.had.co.nz/

There’s an accompanying exercise solution book at https://jrnold.github.io/r4ds-exercise-solutions/

For a different take on the solutions, check out Yet another ‘R for Data Science’ study guide which can also be found at https://brshallo.github.io/r4ds_solutions/

If you’d like more of a roadmap which incorporates this book, have a look at my blogpost:


2.0.2 Video Course: Getting started with R

If you prefer video instruction with progress tracking, check out this course from “R for the Rest of Us” called Getting Started with R.
