Instruction Video 1
Instruction Video 2
These instruction videos explain the basics of R that we have used to set up the R scripts. They should by no means be seen as a substitute for a course in programming. The videos are designed to get you started with R, even without prior knowledge.
Our focus has been on keeping the R scripts simple and accessible, not on programming as efficiently as possible. In case improvements can be made (e.g. based on comments/suggestions of readers), we intend to do so. Hence, please make sure you have the most recent version at your disposal. The most up-to-date version is currently version 1.01.
We hope that Mastering Econometrics will prove useful, and we encourage our readers to write to us with comments and suggestions. Please note that instructors can obtain an associated Instructor's Manual via VU University Press (email@example.com).
