- The AMS Short Math Guide for LaTeX (
**PDF**) is the best resource for writing math. - My LaTeX Resources page might be useful for getting started.

**R Intro for Math 420 (PDF)****Google's Style Guide for R scripts: google-styleguide.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/Rguide.xml**

(You may also want to get familiar with software like Matlab, Mathematica, SAS, ArcGIS, etc. available through UNR Remote Services).
