Overview

SPSS is, essentially, a visually-driven program, but most texts rely primarily on a verbal approach to describe its use. A Visual Approach to SPSS for Windows is the first text of its kind to employ what the author refers to as “visual sequencing” to teach students how to use SPSS.

This book is great for anyone interested in learning to use SPSS!
