Are you confused by SPSS?
Do you understand the concepts of statistics, but struggle with the computer analysis?
Are you tired of figuring out in hours what should only take you minutes?
Or are you just looking for a straightforward, comprehensive reference for SPSS?
SPSS for Windows Step by Step: A Simple Guide and Reference 13.0 Update efficiently shows you how to perform the most common data analysis procedures in SPSS. It is brief but comprehensive. The first part of the book explains the basics of creating and formatting a data set, and includes a chapter on graphs that accommodate the changes in SPSS 13.0. Chapters 6-28 explain, step-by-step, the most common procedures in the Base System Module and the Advanced and Regression Modules. Each chapter is arranged in three parts:
- Introduction explains the following procedure at the general, conceptual level, avoiding excessive detail and excessive emphasis on computation.
- Step by Step boxes and screen shots break down each procedure with clear references to tasks covered in previous chapters.
- Outcome explains the output of what you have just performed and defines critical terms.
