Book DescriptionFor those who have a basic understanding of statistics and want to learn SPSS on their own, Using IBM SPSS Statistics, Second Edition by James O. Aldrich and James B. Cunningham is a concise, practical guide that can be used in conjunction with another text or as a self-instructional resource. With the assistance of ample screenshots, bullet points, and callouts, readers master SPSS by inputting and analyzing their own data, rather than simply opening existing databases. The Second Edition introduces advanced concepts such as Logistic Regression, Principal Components Factor Analysis, and more complex graphing methods. This edition is compatible with IBM SPSS versions through 23.
The text is clearly written, concise, [and] well-organized, and I very much appreciated its interactive approach. The screenshots of SPSS utilized throughout make it especially user-friendly for students.
