If you are googling for R code, make sure to also include package names in your search query (if you are using a specific package). For example, instead of googling “scatterplot in R”, google “scatterplot in R with ggplot2”.

Rstudio provides links to several cheatsheets that will come in handy throughout the semester.

You can get nice PDF versions of the files by going to Help -> Cheatsheets inside RStudio:

The book titled “Getting used to R, RStudio, and R Markdown” by Chester Ismay, which can be freely accessed here, is also a wonderful resource for for new users of R, RStudio, and R Markdown. It includes examples showing working with R Markdown files in RStudio recorded as GIFs.
