Using the popular SPSS software to de-mystify statistics
Using SPSS for Windows and Macintosh guides students through basic SPSS techniques, using step-by-step descriptions and explaining in detail how to avoid common pitfalls in the study of statistics.

The Eighth Edition has been updated for SPSS version 23 (Windows/Mac), and now offers added accessibility and increased problem solving.
