Best Step-by-Step Guide for Statistical Analysis I first used SPSS on a mainframe computer at a university. Researchers needed programmers who used 3-ring binders to write the statistical procedure code on punch cards. Fast forward and today we have "SPSS for Psychologists." I have found this the most user friendly source on the market - and I have a shelf full of references and printouts from the web. If you want to learn how to run and interpret a statistical procedure, this will be your best step-by-step guide. Highly recommended.. Great tutorial MacDuff I use this as a hands-on reference book, and I find that it is often very helpful. Clear directions and examples, and you can download data from their site. Excellent guide for SPSS.I just wish they had more instructions on creating and modifying figures in SPSS.. "Massive Help for my Report!" according to JoJacques. Very clearly and concisely explained; I purchased this book to assist me with a Project write up for my degree as I was failing to grasp some of the concepts of the F ratio and what it actually meant, and despite substantial research couldn't get a straight answer. This book gave it to me straight away, which helped clear my mind to see where I was going wrong with my results section. I will also be using this later on this year with my new module which deals with more complex statistics and reporting as it covers everything in such an easy to understand manner. Thoroughly recommend.
