SPSS 14 Made Simple is the latest edition of one of the most popular textbooks in its field. Each statistical technique is presented in a realistic research context and, as in previous editions, is illustrated with screen snapshots of SPSS dialogue boxes and output. The book provides guidance on the choice of statistical techniques that are right for your research question and your own data, and advises on how to report the results of statistical analysis.
Coverage has been expanded to include several additional topics such as analysis of covariance, partial correlation, multivariate analysis of variance, reliability, signal detection and ROC curves, and Cohen's kappa. Other sections, such as those on power and effect size, have been fully revised and updated. There is also extensive consideration of the new and powerful graphical methods offered by SPSS 14, which are of great assistance at the exploratory stage in data analysis.
The first chapter sets the scene with a survey of different research situations, key terms and advice on the choice of appropriate statistical methods. It provides clear signposts to where each procedure is described in the body of the book. The next chapters introduce you to SPSS and how to use it to get to know your data and graphical methods. Each of the remaining chapters concentrates on one particular kind of research situation and the statistical techniques that are applicable. There are chapters on t-tests, analysis of variance and covariance, correlation and regression, multiway frequency analysis, discriminant analysis, logistic regression and factor analysis. Where appropriate, details of nonparametric tests have also been included.

'As if doing a PhD wasn't hard enough work already, being an SPSS virgin, thrown in at the deep end, just topped things off. Statistics was not only daunting but hard going! I was advised to get my hands on an SPSS book. I came across this book and I can honestly say it's a beauty. It's a great book that is easy on the eye and, even better, simple to understand! It shall forever remain on my desk for quick reference!' - amazon.co.uk customer review of the previous edition
