This book teaches multivariate statistical methods in an enjoyable way and includes programming scripts in SAS programme. It is highly recommended for whom would like to enjoy while learning statistical methods and apply them in SAS programme.
This textbook is rich and excellent for students' learning. It provides detail information on the statistics hidden in SAS. It is easy to understand. I highly recommended it to students in Marketing, Economics and other Business related Courses.
The little SAS book is an excellent point of departure to begin with SAS. "Discovering statistics using SAS" represents a great complimentary tool. It is not only a great tutorial on the SAS functionning but it is also an excellent step by step guide to begin and improve your understanding of statistics in general and especially in social sciences.
People who already own "discovering statistics using SPSS" will not be disappointed at all.
SAS is less useful to our students than SPSS
This is a very good book on Discovering Statistics using SAS. It explains statistical concept very clearly and simply using SAS.
A great resource for new students! Fun and friendly; both necessary ingredients to secure student involvement in your course.
more of a reference text tan one for undergraduates
Like the SPSS version, this book is very comprehensive and amusing. Andy's way of presenting statistical knowledge is so interesting. The book is full with life-time examples in how to do statistical tests that will guide every student in research.
I am learning SAS and this is great guide to me and my fellow researchers
SAS was more complicated for students to manage. Looking into using SPSS. More faculty members are using SPSS, therefore students will have greater access to SPSS support.
I found the text too complex for a 200 level statistics course.
I'm adopting this book as supplemental reading because it has very detailed instruction on the use of specific statistical analysis tools. Specially useful for when students have decided on their research strategy and analytical framework.
Field's style is popular with students, and we have them use JMP.
SAS licensing is too expensive in Malaysia.
While a great resource for areas like applied statistics that have a background in programming in SAS, does not seem beneficial for psychology students who are more focused on the ends rather than the means.
A useful book. We use SAS only marginally but this book is very good support for what we do.
This book from Andy Field is nice, but not as great as its SPSS counterpart. Although the basic structure and content are the same (and thus as good as the SPSS version), it is somewhat less explanatory and not as clearly presented with regard to using SAS. Also, some of its charm is lost because of the black-and-white layout.
meet the purposes of the course
A book that make SAS a user-friendly sotfware. Written in a very funny way, it makes the leaning process very pleasant.
Excellent guide to SAS for Psychology students
