From the Back Cover:

This book is an indispensible guide for practitioners and students who use SPSS 15.0 for Windows in their research. Comprehensive in scope, SPSS Essentials explains foundational concepts of SPSS: how to operate effectively within the SPSS environment, create and manipulate data, folders, and different types of data; how to specify and interpret the output of common inferential analyses (ANOVA, correlation, regression); how to integrate and use supplementary software programs such as Excel and Notepad, and other essential tools and concepts. Written in a highly engaging style, the book contains screen shots, step-by-step instructions, and a wealth of examples—all of which make this book a valuable addition to the teaching of research data management and analysis in the behavioral and social sciences.
