Unfortunately, I have not found an online resource for R and
statistics as good as the book, Peter Dalgaard, Introductory
Stastistics with R, Springer, 2002.  It would be great to
have an online copy of this book.  It fills a niche for me
that no online tutorial does.  Luckily, it's quite small, so
carrying it around is less burdensome than most statistics
textbooks.  It is currently the textbook for Epidemiology
870, a graduate level course at the University of Michigan's
School of Public Health.

> I have those of course. I was looking for further tutorials.
>  >What do you mean the "statistical aspect" of R?
> I mean using and building statistical models for data analysis

> A lot of the tutorials in above url try to explain R as a programming

> Just to prevent misunderstanding, I do own, and am familiar with, 
> exhaustive statistical texts. So I don't exactly need a course in 
> statistics.
