Statistical Analysis with R

Although the field of statistics proceeds in a logical way, the writer organized statistical analysis with R so that you can open it up in any chapter and start reading. The idea is for you to find the information you’re looking for in a hurry and use it immediately whether it’s a statistical concept or an R-related one. On the other hand, reading from cover to cover is okay if you’re so inclined. If you’re a statistics newbie and you have to use R to analyze data, I recommend that you begin at the beginning.

You can start reading this book anywhere, but here are a couple of hints. Want to learn the foundations of statistics? Turn the page. Introduce yourself to R? That’s Chapter 2.
