Structural Equation Modeling with EQS and EQS/WINDOWS
Basic Concepts, Applications, and Programming
- Barbara M. Byrne - University of Ottawa, Canada
"Byrne’s book is a delightfully written, systematic approach to the practical use of structural equation modeling in research. It begins with first principles and advances systematically through intermediate and advanced topics, introducing at each step the theory that is relevant as well as the practical models needed to implement these ideas on real models used in actual research contexts. The reader can then easily modify the examples for their own research since the types of models discussed will be relevant in many research contexts. The book is also timely, being the first text to show how statistics generally, and modeling in particular, can be fun in the Windows environment."
". . . . Newcomers to SEM who want to use EQS or EQS/Windows would benefit greatly from this book, either for self-teaching or as a supplemental guide in a course. . . . Byrne intends her books ‘to provide a practical guide to SEM using the EQS approach.’ She succeeds admirably."
