Hi. I would like to use R software in conjunction with my SPSS 17.0, my OS is Windows xp SP3.
The main aim for me is calculation of PRESS (prediction sum of squares), and MSPR (mean squared prediction error) in cross validation. Would you mind giving me any suggestions about a book or reference that introduces me with R, please?

Re: I need a book to be introduced with R2011-07-17T21:11:28Z in response to MehrR is not an easy language to master, and you will need the R plugin for SPSS to use it with SPSS Statistics. However, we are not able to distribute that anymore for Statistics versions older than 18.
However, there is a book by Bob Muenchen called R for SAS and SPSS users that you might find helpful in getting started with R. It is over 600 pages long, although you certainly would not need to read all of it.
