9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Todd Steeves on March 5, 2000
Format: Paperback
The Amazon synopsis accurately describes the content and function of this book. Each chapter includes multiple examples of the structure of the syntax and use of Splus functions, and concludes with exploratory exercises (with solutions) to further the chapter theme. I am a graduate student with a modest understanding of statistics and virtually no programming experience. This book enabled me to construct custom bootstrap functions for exploratory data analysis within two days of beginning to learn Splus. This book is more easily read than any other Splus guide I have found, and I would recommend it to anyone using Splus, beginners and experienced users alike.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Ted Liou on April 18, 2000
Format: Paperback
The book provides a very good working introduction to Splus and programming in S. It is geared towards those who will be using the command line interface. There were enough examples to help me to begin to do fairly complex statistical analysis in just a few hours of starting work with a large database. After 2 years, I still find the examples and tables about graphics helpful.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent text for first time exposure to S plus. As a graduate student in statistics, I found this text to be appropriate and helpful. I found this text to be very readable. I would encourage professors to consider this book as an introductory text. It lacks coverage of old and new style classes but does a nice job covering the graphic capabilities of S plus.

Format: Paperback
The book does a good job of explaining all of the techniques and applications of S-Plus, but doesn't give adequate examples. You're left trying to figure out what commands to type in. This book may be better as a reference guide for a more experienced user.
