A Crash Course in SPSS for Windows Summary


A Crash Course in SPSS for Windows: Versions 10 and 11 by Rod Corston

This simple, user-friendly introduction to SPSS for Windows has now been updated so that it can be used with versions 10 and 11 of the software. The new edition is also supported by a website with a variety of useful components, including coverage of factor analysis and log-linear analysis, and additional examples taken from sociology and other social science disciplines. The second edition retains all of the features that have made the text so attractive to students and teachers: The material is concise and focused, enabling most users to learn the basics comfortably within ten hours, and making it enjoyable. All the most widely used statistical techniques and graphic facilities in SPSS for Windows are clearly described. Every statistical procedure is explained with the help of a step-by-step analysis of a numerical example. All computational examples are taken from real data from published research. The authors have chosen small data sets to avoid the task of inputting the data becoming boring. Screen dumps on the page make it easy for students to cross between the text and the screen. For complete beginners, the first two chapters describe the basic features of Windows and explain how to get the SPSS package up and running. The second edition will continue to enable students to learn the package quickly and painlessly, assuming they have some understanding of statistical methods.
