I used to love statistics but it has been years since I passed my last stats course. I thought I could just download the most recent version of SPSS and run with it. Boy was I wrong!

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.

This was a required textbook for a quantitative research methods course I took at university. It is easy to read and understand and is a good resource for someone new to SPSS and would also likely be a good reference for those familiar with the program but needing a refresher.

You can find most of the basic analysis tools you need in this book. But something like how to do a mediator test or moderator test are not included in this book.

HASH(0xa0e2ab34) out of 5 stars So glad I got it! Aug. 19 2011
By Busy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
Anyone wanting to use SPSS just MUST get this book - especially if you are working on your dissertation! She makes it easy and understandable with her step by step process. Unless you are a super-sophisticated statistician, you will be so glad you got this book! I have recommended it to my other doctoral cohorts and they agree with me - even my chairperson of my committee who is a statistical genius highly recommends it!

HASH(0xa0de08d0) out of 5 stars This book saved my skin! Feb. 11 2011
By L. Alfaro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
I am currently in a doctoral-level Methods and Analysis of Quantitative Research class, and I was struggling to understand SPSS. The university provided web-based tutorial videos, but the videos went too fast & skipped over important steps. I am so glad I found this book! The author breaks everything down into plain English and makes the software very easy to understand. I am now getting an A in my course, due in no small part to this book.

HASH(0xa0297210) out of 5 stars Extremely helpful Feb. 12 2011
By Goldie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
Unlike other so-called help books for SPSS (and I did try a bunch), this one gives clear and concise explanations of what it is that you are looking at. The author provides write-ups for output examples and this is a key to understanding the functions of the program. Plain English actually makes it easier to think through the statistical concepts than do formulas. Duh! Nice to see at least one author hasn't gotten so far into the statistical ether that she can't communicate back to earth!

HASH(0xa0a13348) out of 5 stars Quick Guide Sept. 21 2012
By Halah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book offers a quick manual or a guide to different tests in SPSS, practical examples are provided in business and health. However, it doesn't offer full utility of any test or justification to different uses. You may use the book for knowing how to perform a certain analysis but you will need to consult a standard text book on statistics to know about the functions, limitations, and utility of any particular test.
