       Have you looked at www.r-project.org -> books?  Also, 
"www.r-project.org -> CRAN (select a mirror) -> Documentation: 
Contributed" includes a variety of documents that are free and 
potentially quite helpful.

       Also, I wouldn't be shy about asking co-workers for suggestions. 
  (I'd rather ask a stupid question than make a stupid mistake.)

       Hope this helps.
