Quality text that provides students with a useful introduction and explanatory overview of statistical analysis & SPSS. Will be advising my students as a recommended text.
The book covers most statistical concepts for beginners well. The examples and illustrations are good an easy to follow. However, it would a good self teaching tool if it had a a copy of the book as a CD +worked examples in CD as well for class illustration purposes.
Very good book, although I liked the previous edition better!
Its a fantastic book for those who are getting accustomed to the SPSS software. Easy reading and understanding. Helps one to move step by step into statistical analysis.
