 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
 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.
