"A good resource for learning statistical concepts through using SPSS or SAS, and an excellent resource for an instructor teaching a statistical analysis course. The sequence of chapters builds logically from univariate to multivariate analysis. Each chapter provides a good explanation of the concepts to be illustrated. The book will be particularly useful for students and faculty in such programs as quantitative psychology, sociology, or public health."
