Ready, set, go!
On R-exercises, you will find hundreds of exercises that will help you to learn R. We’ve bundled them into exercise sets, where each set covers a specific concept or function. An exercise set typically contains about 10 exercises, progressing from easy to somewhat more difficult. In order to give you a full picture of all the amazing content on this website, we’ve categorized all sets into broader topics below.
If you’re completely new to R, we suggest you simply start with the first topic, “Simple manipulations; numbers and vectors”. Once you’ve managed to work through all exercise sets, from top to bottom, you should have a fair amount of knowledge of, and practical experience with, using R. Of course, those of you who are familiar with R already, can jump straight to any of the topics below.
New exercise sets are added on a daily basis. Subscribe to R-exercises to receive daily updates by email.
