Books
 Atomic R
 Currently in use for STAT 385 at Illinois for the Department of Statistics. Provides an introduction to programming through the use of the R programming language. Focuses on “Base R” rather than the
tidyverse
collection of domain specific packages.

 Applied Statistics with R
 Currently in use for STAT 420 both inperson and online at Illinois for the Departments of Statistics and Computer Science.
 R for Statistical Learning / Basics of Statistical Learning
 These books should largely be considered abandonware. Expect to see similar material for Python developed for use in CS 307.
 Perpetually undergoing considerable changes and developments, including an attempt at a complete rewrite. Originally intended to be supplemental notes to ISL in order to provide additional examples in R, the text is starting to become a complete reference text for STAT 432, Basics of Statistical Learning, at Illinois for the Department of Statistics. Target audience is advanced undergraduate students in statistics with previous experience with R and regression.
