R at an undergraduate level.
Is there a commonly recommended text?

For introductory statistics and econometrics I would suggest the following.
The following two books are introductory statistics and econometrics in R.
Gujarati and Greene are the best suggestion if you are looking basic econometrics. My friends use the last two books and they are happy about the book.
You can also find more tutorials or handouts in google. I guess the cran document Econometrics in R may be useful.
There's a new option written by my humble self: "Using R for Introductory Econometrics"
It is designed to be completely consistent with Jeff Wooldridge's "Introductory Econometrics" in terms of topics, terminology, and and notation.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
I suggest you:
Wooldridge, Jeffrey. Introductory econometrics: A modern approach. Cengage Learning, 2012.
that is really simple and good for an initial approach to econometrics.
