Pinned topic I need a book to be introduced with R

‏2011-07-17T18:09:52Z |
Dear All
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?

Kind regards

Mehrshad Koleini, MD

    R 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.

    HTH,

    there is a built in manual within the R-server installation.

    You can also get a few books from Oreilley.
