"Hinton and colleagues once again offer a comprehensible text on SPSS that is sure to be as accessible to students as the first edition was. Users will find the same helpful features for each chapter - an introduction to the statistical test, the procedures illustrated with data view and output file images, explanations for novice and advanced users, advice boxes, and FAQs. The colored graphics are a valuable addition that will aid users greatly as they run their tests and analyze their output files. A highly-recommended resource for SPSS users of all levels." - Jocelyn Clare R. Hermoso, San Francisco State University, USA
