Hot on the heels of Andy Field's best-selling Discovering Statistics Using SPSS, Third Edition (2009), the author has teamed up with a co-author, Jeremy Miles, to adapt this textbook for SAS® using the most up-to-date commands and programming language available in latest release 9.2.
SAS® is a very powerful and popular package used throughout the world in university education, especially in the Behavioral Sciences, Business, and Economics. As with its sister textbook, Discovering Statistics Using SAS® takes the entry level student from first principles right the way through to advanced level statistical concepts all the while grounding knowledge through the use of SAS®. Its approach is to teach statistical concepts as well as the computational principles, commands and language of the SAS® software package in one textbook, and given this comprehensive coverage this textbook should be enthusiastically adopted on a wide variety of statistics courses.
Following the same award-winning contents structure, accessible writing style and pedagogical approach (including a 'cast of characters' that feature in each chapter) as for its sister textbook, Discovering Statistics Using SAS® will be a hugely popular textbook for SAS® users pursuing courses in statistics who then need to apply their knowledge and skills to tackling research reports, dissertations or theses.
