"SPSS is the most widely used statistical analysis software suite in the social and behavioural sciences. It is used extensively in undergraduate psychology courses throughout the UK and USA. However psychology students find it notoriously difficult and often impossible to learn and use. Howitt and Cramers' SPSS Statistics in Psychology is an indispensible guide to the software, specially tailored for psychology students at all levels. The new edition is greatly enhanced by a several new features, including chapters on the analysis of moderator variables, statistical power, meta - analysis, and the use of SPSS syntax. It is superbly presented and illustrated with excellent step by step procedures and guides to the interpretation of results which even introductory level students will be able to follow. The supporting datasets and worked examples also provide an excellent resource for students and teachers. It has easily maintained its lead in a competitive field, and together with its companion textbooks, Introduction to Statistics (Fifth Edition) and Introduction to Research Methods (Third Edition), it has everything that apprentice and experienced researchers in psychology need."
