My new book, Probability and Statistics for Data Science: Math + R + Data, pub. by the CRC Press, was released on June 24!
This book arose from an open-source text I wrote and have been teaching from. The open source version will still be available, though rather different from the published one.
This is a math stat book, but different from all others, as the subtitle states: Math + R + Data. Even the topic ordering is rather different, with a goal of bringing in data science-relevant material as early as possible.
I’ve placed an excerpt from the book at http://tinyurl.com/y6hf7x66. I believe it epitomizes the intent and style of the book. Also, I’ve placed the front matter at http://tinyurl.com/yy9hx6db
I’m continuing to add more lessons to my free online R tutorial, 17 of them so far, adding more from time to time. Aimed specifically at nonprogrammers, though those with C or Python background should find it helpful too. Comments and suggestions welcome!
For some time, I’ve planned to write up a point-by-point comparison of R and Python. I’ve done so now! Comments welcome.
