We estimate that this course will take approximately three days to cover the core material contained in Chapters 1 - 4 and Chapter 6 of our Introduction to R book, but this will naturally vary between individuals. Of course, how you choose to cover the material in these Chapters is up to you. If you plan on ring fencing a block of time to complete the whole course then we suggest the timetable below. However, this may not be an option (or optimal) for everyone, in which case we suggest that you try to complete the material for each Chapter in a single session (perhaps in either a morning or an afternoon).
Morning: Importing and manipulating dataframes (Chapter 3)
Afternoon: Plotting data in R using base and lattice graphics (Chapter 4)
