there is also an interesting book ‘Data Mining with R: learning by case studies’ by Luis Torgo, quite suitable to rookie learner. 🙂November 10, 2015 at 2:51 pm #2367Rakesh Sasidharan PillaiParticipant
I would recommend Introduction to Statistical Learning by Tibshirani available here:http://www-bcf.usc.edu/~gareth/ISL/, if you are interested in data analytics in R. Also the coursera course Practical Machine Learning by John Hopkins University would be a worthwhile investment of time.November 11, 2015 at 9:43 am #2373Andrew MichaletzParticipant
Thanks! I have used this site while using R for various classes.February 5, 2018 at 5:39 am #3256Ismayil AdigozalzadaParticipant
You can also take one of the many MOOC’s available for free as long as you audit the class i.e. only accessing the course material and not working towards obtaining a certification. Below please find two examples from courses currently offered at EdX.
Harvard University, Statistics and R: https://www.edx.org/course/statistics-r-harvardx-ph525-1x-1
Microsoft, Programming with R for Data Science: https://www.edx.org/course/programming-r-data-science-microsoft-dat209x-6
You can also check Udacity, Coursera and other MOOC’sApril 16, 2018 at 5:09 pm #3464MadhuvanthiParticipant
I would also definitely try using apps such as tableau to get a better feel for data visualization and then maybe transition into back end coding.April 20, 2018 at 11:06 am #3487John KroeningParticipant
Swinbourne University has a series on Itunes podcast called “Using R for Statistical Analysis” I found it very helpful when just getting started. It’s free and each session is topical lasting 3-10 minutes, with examples. Besides that googling and getting your hands dirty on coding. There is no substitute for putting the work in and trying to solve 1 small problem at a time.April 22, 2018 at 11:42 am #3493Rachel NachmanParticipantApril 23, 2018 at 11:31 am #3506Benjamin MorrisParticipant
Hadley Wickham has an online version of his Data Analysis book online; I’ve found it super helpful in learning the basics for analysis within the tidyverse framework.April 30, 2018 at 9:39 pm #3653wenhaoParticipant
I have been datacamp member for a year and this website will not be really helpful unless you pay for it. But its quality and tidiness worth the price.May 2, 2018 at 12:04 pm #3694Edward LeiParticipant
At UW-Madison, there are seminars to help people understand the basics of R better that are free and people can go to at night each semester.May 2, 2018 at 12:13 pm #3698Wenjun ZhuParticipant
I would like to recommend this website:
There are plenty of free exercises concerning almost every topic that you can practice to learn R.February 9, 2019 at 5:57 pm #4290David McKinneyParticipant
Also at UW-Madison through MyUW you can access free R video’s through https://www.lynda.com/ . Hope this helps.February 21, 2019 at 10:37 am #4306Michael KemnitzParticipant

Regardless, this post has been very helpful with homework problems requiring R code! Thanks.
