The first thing I would recommend to anyone hoping to start Learning R is to watch this 10-minute quick-start tutorial. It’ll take you through installation, how to load the data, and some of the basic things you can type in the console. After you watch that video, watch this second 10-minute sequel here..

Here’s why I’ve started learning R:

  • It’s great for manipulating calculations in large datasets
  • It’s “the language for statistical computing”, and in certain cases is a better tool than Excel.
