This step-by-step guide shows you how to use R to get data analysis right.

The book explores the entire process of analysis, covering key steps from preparing your data to putting your analysis together and writing up your findings. It helps you get to grips with doing different statistical techniques in R and:

  • Equips you with practical data visualisation tools to create graphs and tables.
  • Shows you how to prepare and present your research for assessment, publication and dissemination.
  • Covers key issues facing today’s social scientists, such as making research reproducible.

Features include an introduction to each chapter, and end-of-chapter exercises to check your understanding of the material. The online resources for this text include data sets that you can perform your own analysis on, and links to publications that are relevant to programming with R.

Very nice textbook for beginners in R. Complementary to other basic methodology books.

This seems like a great book for a graduate student doing their 1st (2nd, 3rd...) study. It goes over things that have to be thought of during the experiment cycle. As a teacher for undergrads, however, this is not a book that I could use in my teaching. Nevertheless, there were some cool tips for R use that I didn't know earlier! As a side note, the figures and grey lettering seemed somewhat off, as if too small dpi was used.
