Lacks the statistical theory other books do provide.
I don't think this book is engaging enough for students, and I have found better alternatives.
i didnt recieve it till now
Still prefer Salkind's statistics book for overall simplicity and integration with SPSS. However, this is a very good supplemental text.
The book is really pedagogical and great way of introducing my students to the basic SPSS methods analysis.
In my opinion, it will be needed more examples, I mean, making more exercices with different data for each specific statistical test learned.
The rest, great.
Applied Statistics with SPSS is a well written text which we recommend as an entry level book for anyone doing quantitative project work using SPSS. This book has been well received by honours and masters students undertaking dissertation work which have a statistical element. Of particular significance was Part II (7) ‘Working with SPSS and Data Entry’ which many students reported as being the most important section of the book as it describes designing and conducting questionnaires with data entry.
This title is also available on SAGE Research Methods, the ultimate digital methods library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
