A well thought out text that explains fundamental statistics well - this is a text that aims to support statistics courses, it is not a manual for R. But it does use R well to illustrate statistical approaches and users will gain a good knowledge of R while using the text.
The book does exactly what it says on its cover. Although R language may seem difficult to handle at the beginning, the structure and the abundance of examples and reinforcements notes contained in the book would make it a first reading choice.
R seems exceptionally complicated for introductory statistics students. I am considering adopting this book for an advanced quantitative methods class that I will be teaching in subsequent semesters.
Students find that learning R is too demanding at this point in their career.
The book is pretty detailed when it comes to statistical concepts and tests. It is therefore not only useful in teaching/learning the handling of R, but helps with understand statistical concepts.
Seems adequate for introductory statistics. Good introduction to R. Access to the R scripts should be very helpful.
Good text in all ramnification.
A very interesting text
A clear book on an alternative way of analysing data. Too advanced for this purpose, but perhaps of interest to advanced students.
This book provides a very good introduction to stats with worked examples in R. It would work well as the primary source for a first course on stats or - as is my case -as a cheap and straight forward self-contained self-learning text for students switching to R from other statistical packages. I am very likely to use this book for other courses also. It stacks to very well against the many other introductory statistics texts in R that I have seen.
Book did not offer the information our college is looking for
The School of Education department is currently still using SPSS as the primary statistical software. But, in a future this would be a good textbook to adopt.
This is a great book
