Software: You must download the open-source (i.e. free) software at http://cran.r-project.org/. You must also need Excel (any spreadsheet packages (Apple's iWork-Numbers, OpenOffice's Calc, or Google's spreadsheet function) should work as well. It is also a good idea to have a text editor available that is better than Notepad. For Macs, I recommend TextWrangler, and for PCs I recommend Notepad++. Both of these programs are available free of charge.
