This course has about 90 videos and 140+ exercise questions, over 10 chapters. To begin with, you will learn to Download and Install R (and R studio) on your computer. Then I show you some basic things in your first R session.
From there, you will review topics in increasing order of difficulty, starting with Data/Object Types and Operations, Importing into R, and Loops and Conditions.
Next, you will be introduced to the use of R in Analytics, where you will learn a little about each object type in R and use that in Data Mining/Analytical Operations.
After that, you will learn the use of R in Statistics, where you will see about using R to evaluate Descriptive Statistics, Probability Distributions, Hypothesis Testing, Linear Modeling, Generalized Linear Models, Non-Linear Regression, and Trees.
Following that, the next topic will be Graphics, where you will learn to create 2-dimensional Univariate and Multi-variate plots. You will also learn about formatting various parts of a plot, covering a range of topics like Plot Layout, Region, Points, Lines, Axes, Text, Color and so on.
