Complex tasks require more complex variables—variables that contain multiple values, often of different types and ways to interact with these variables beyond simple assignments and value reads. R provides many more advanced types to handle these sorts of complex tasks, such as vectors, arrays, and lists. Explore these advanced types and learn how to create and use them in your code. Take a look at some of the functions R provides for working with advanced types and find out how using them will allow you to create elegant and efficient R solutions. See the operators in action, and become more comfortable with R.
Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.
This course assumes that student has some programming experience and using a personal computer. No other experience is required.
