A procedural software manual for Advanced Statistics courses. Students new to statistical analysis and SPSS as well as seasoned users will find this manual incredibly valuable, as it provides tips, warnings, and examples that aid data analysis. While the underlying statistical concepts are reviewed, the emphasis is on practical matters: understanding the analyses that can be performed using SPSS. It offers suggestions and concentrates on topics that arise when analyzing real data for presentations, reports, and dissertations. The accompanying CD-ROM contains many of the datasets used in the book.
