What others are saying
This book is about learning how to use R for performing data mining.

The book follows a "learn by doing it" approach to data mining instead of the more frequent theoretical description of the techniques available in this discipline. This is accomplished by presenting a series of illustrative case studies for which all necessary steps, code and data are provided to the reader.

The book writing style establishes it as a good source for practical classes on data mining, but also as an attractive document to professionals working on data mining in non-academic environments.

Most of the main data mining processes and techniques are covered in the book by means of the presentation of four detailed case studies:
  • Predicting algae blooms
  • Predicting stock market returns
  • Detecting fraudulent transactions
  • Classifying microarray samples
