SPSS 12 Made Simple provides a step-by-step coverage of every aspect of data analysis with SPSS from data entry to interpretation of the output. As well as advice on data entry and checking, there is guidance on the best ways of describing a data set and the choice of an appropriate statistical technique. Finally, the output is fully explained, with reference to fully annotated SPSS output. Extensive illustrations show exactly what is on the screen at every stage of the process, helping the reader to avoid common pitfalls and check their progress along the way. Most chapters end with practical exercises to illustrate the main points raised and allow the reader to test their understanding; but there is a final general revision section with further exercises on a range of topics.
