Not only did I find the drop down and pop up menus confusing I couldn't get the program to do what I wanted despite being able to clearly write down what I wanted and being reasonably competent on a computer with spread sheets and data bases. It was very depressing.
This text starts with the basics and is written in clear language that allowed me to quickly skip over what I already knew and dig deeper into the parts I needed help with. In addition the section on preliminary analyses helped me to understand what I needed to do and why before actually testing my main hypotheses, something I hadn't really connected with until faced with a mountain of my own data. The coil back design means I can leave this text on my desk and dig through my data, write paragraphs in my dissertation and then jump back into the text as needed to check something that comes to mind as I am working.
To sum up. I have a lot of stats texts collected over the years that sit on my shelf. This one is staying on my desk.
