I used this book for my CRJU class. If you are somewhat computer savvy you can get buy. However some of the steps miss out important walk throughs and I would imagine it would be very difficult to interpret by someone who is maybe older or not great with computers. The steps could be a bit more thorough but I managed to get 100's on all my assignments for the spss labs but that did take some effort.
This book is so hard to follow. There are some step-by-step instructions, but not enough and I am constantly getting lost / have no idea what Cronk is talking about. I have to search for how to perform the practice exercises, which leaves me beyond frustrated.
This book has been extremely helpful to me as I go through my statistics class! The professor told us about this book 4 weeks into the course. If you are using SPSS, I strongly recommend it.
I met the expectation but did not exceed them data do discused in the book include box plot. The glossary doesn't provide enough information I am still unclear regarding what ordinal and scale data means this is important as certain grafts and outputs won't run correctly with certain data for example frequency data uses nominal and interval data were descriptive data uses scale ordinal data I think. The book is easy to read and short.
