Subject: [R] an off-topic question -> model validation
Currently, I am working on a data mining project and plan to divide
the data table into 2 parts, one for modeling and the other for
validation to compare several models.
But I am not sure about the percentage of data I should use to build
the model and the one I should keep to validate the model.
Is there any literature reference about this topic?
Thank you so much!
