[R] Tutorials on R

There are a number of resources but I believe the best for starters is
_Introductory Statistics with R_, by Peter Dalgaard.  It's inexpensive ($35)
and very well written, easy to read and understand even if you don't know a
lot of statistics.  In fact the book's intention is to teach you stats by
way of R, so you get a "Two-fer."  If you can only have one book, get this

Now, if your level of statistical sophistication is a bit further along then
the book is Venables and Ripley, _Modern Applied Statistics with S_.  But if
you are just starting out, and you want to learn R the easy way (learning by
doing), then get Dalgaard.  It's a great book.
