Start your data science journey with the R programming language. Learn how to model, structure, visualize, and transform data.

(DS-R.AJ1) / ISBN : 978-1-64459-310-3## About This Course

R for Data Science is a comprehensive course that leverages the popular R-syntax for mastering the techniques of data exploration, manipulation and visualization. You’ll learn the basics for using R vectors for creating lists, matrices, arrays, and data frames. Next, you’ll learn how to deploy conditional statements, functions, classes, and debugging. You’ll discover ways to read and write with R for creating transformative visualizations using ggplot2. By the end of this course, you’ll gain the confidence to tackle complex data challenges and write your own R scripts.

Contact Us NowR is a great choice for Data Science especially when you are using it for statistics and in-depth analysis. It equips you with the knowledge of using powerful features like the ggplot2 package and boasts of a vast library for hypothesis, testing and modeling.

Deep understanding of ML concepts and statistics; proficient with advanced level algebra, knowledge of database management and experience with Python or R programming language.

R and Python both are relevant for data science with their own set of advantages. R has a rich library ideal for in-depth analysis and data visualization whereas Python stands out for its easier syntax (closer to English language) and scikit-learn library ideal for versatility and machine learning.

This depends on your background. If you have prior coding experience and you are good with statistics, you’ll find it more manageable. However, R’s unique syntax can be a little bit challenging for those without any coding experience. This is where uCertify can aid your progress with hands-on learning and practice exercises that’ll make it easier to grasp the core concepts.

You’ll get hands-on experience as this course is majorly focused on practical learning. At uCertify, we facilitate your learning experience with our 49+ interactive features where you’ll be doing a lot of exercises and projects to solidify your understanding of the core concepts.

If you want to excel in the field of data science and make an impact with your statistical and analytical capabilities, this is the course for you.

Yes, after completing the course successfully, you’ll get a certificate of achievement to showcase that you are well versed with R for Data science.
