After finding myself back in school (after 30+ years) I needed to relearn SPSS. The last time I used SPSS, it involved entering commands onto punch cards, sending them thru a card reader and waiting for output.This book is about the modernized version of SPSS, and steps you thru the process of using recent versions of the software. It is not particularly useful in learning statistical analysis, but along with the Intermediate book it is very helpful in navigating the new SPSS.
This book is indispensable! Keep it close at hand when using SPSS version 19. It gives highly practical advice on how to set up the data and use the various statistical functions in the SPSS package.Use other books to learn theory; use this manual to learn how to make your software package run properly. For example, using chi-square analysis is NOT intuitive in the SPSS. You have to set up the data in a specific arrangement for a 2 x 2 contingency table. This book does everything it promises!
So far so good. I haven't finished the book but I find it fairly easy to follow. One issue has been that the link they give you to download the data file did not work for me. I did find it on the publishers site though http://www.taylorandfrancis.com/books/details/9781848729827/under datasets. I hope that helps.
I found out much too late that my chromebook was NOT compatible with this program. Nobody knew and nobody could help me get a refund. I was never able to download the program onto my Chromebook and have wasted money.
If you're looking to educate yourself on the methods and terminology of quantitative research, this is a perfect guide. Well worth the investment.
Great book that gave easy step by step instructions with all the data connected to our CSUCI library and all computers.
Nice illustrations that show you what to click on in SPSS. It makes it easy to follow and learn the program.
