The topics are presented in the same sequence as in a first course -not in SPSS groupings. For instance, instead of a single chapter on using SPSS to produce a variety of statistical figures, each type of figure is illustrated at an appropriate point in this text. The sequential organization makes it easy for students to navigate SPSS for the specific purposes they need in class. No previous knowledge of SPSS is assumed. Each step is clearly explained and fully illustrated. Each chapter defines one or two statistics, describes when to use them, and illustrates how to compute them using SPSS. Each chapter shows how to format raw SPSS output and describe it in a research report. All examples are consistent with the styles specified in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.. Hundreds of screenshots with superimposed arrows make it easy for students to follow the step-by-step directions for using SPSS. End-of-chapter exercises help students master their new skills. An answer key will be included with each examination copy. New to this edition: A new chapter (Chapter 11) on simple linear regression has been added to this edition, providing more comprehensive coverage of statistics commonly included in introductory statistics textbooks.

I wish I would have had this book before when I was working on my first master's degree. Basically, we were required to learn to use SPSS but relied on our professor to show us how to use the program. I used SPSS in one of my jobs but had to take what little I learned at the university and figure out more on my own. I am so glad that the professor from my research methods class required us to use this book. It has exercises in each chapter (except the first one) to help the use learn to use SPSS. For anyone who is like me (not good in math and did not have a college stats course), I found a lot of value in this book which really outlines the ways to use SPSS in a practical easy to learn way. I highly recommend this book!
I bought this book for a Data Analysis class that I had to take for college. I found it to be more helpful than the textbook that I bought for the class. I would definitely recommend this book. It breaks everything down into steps.
Good item, and shipper. On time and happy.
