Product Description

Review

'I found the author's coverage of confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) both clear and accurate. I thought the explanations were pitched at the right level of mathematical and statistical complexity for the intended audience. In fact, the coverage of certain topics - such as the problem of empirical under-identification and the computation of determinants and their functional significance in the assessment of global model fit - are among the best I've read. This is a book that students will be glad to have on their shelves when they turn to their own data later on.' - Christopher M. Federico, Department of Psychology and Department of Political Science, University of Minnesota

'Compared to other books, this book offers a lot of details which would facilitate better understanding of confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). The author is very good at explaining a lot of processes by examples, and includes clears figures and tables. I definitely recommend it to instructors who teach a course on CFA, especially for students who are not in quantitative psychology.' - Ke-Hai Yuan, Department of Psychology, University of Notre Dame

(Learn More)
First Sentence
Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) is a type of structural equation modeling (SEM) that deals specifically with measurement models, that is, the relationships between observed measures or indicators (e.g., test items, test scores, behavioral observation ratings) and latent variables or factors. Read the first page

I haven't read too many textbooks recently that have really grasped my attention, but this is definately one of them. Whether your research is exploratory or confirmatory, Brown's text walks you through the theoretical considerations as well as guiding you through some examples with the more popular software such as Mplus and Lisrel. A truly fantastic book. Could not recommend more highly.

This is a book that is written in a way even someone new to CFA can understand but at the same time has all the detail you could need. A very good book, well written and a must have for anyone doing CFA.

You will keep it on your desktop 12 Oct. 2007
By Luis Arciniega - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are several books on SEM, many of them dedicate just one or two chapters to Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), this book focus 100% on CFA, from the very basics, to the more advanced applications such as Multi groups CFA. I've found the book very helpful, it is sometimes more helpful, than the software's manual itself (e.g. EQS). Each section provides specific examples for the most known software packages (i.e. LISREL, Amos, MPLUS, EQS).

At last a real book on CFA! 16 Sept. 2007
By Audrey AS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
At last an unabridged book really dedicated to Confirmatory Factor Analysis with hands-on approach on how to use the most popular sotfwares. After a brief review of Exploratory Factor Analysis, is goes into every detail of CFA with examples that help. After having bought 3 other books, I finally got this one, the right one.

Clear, thorough, endlessly useful 7 Jan. 2009
By AC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was a lifesaver while writing my dissertation, and it continues to be an essential resource as I expand my analyses and plan future studies. I had taken a course on latent variable analysis, but it wasn't until I read this book that I really understood how confirmatory factor analysis worked, how to figure out which measurement model is best, and how to talk about what I had done in a clear and correct way. I felt like an expert in CFA after reading this book and using it to pattern my own analysis. It maps out all the steps and provides excellent code examples for a wide range of programs (with more focus on mplus, which is what I was using). I recommend this book to everyone I know who might possibly do CFA or structural equation modeling someday.

If Dr. Brown wanted to write books on any other latent variable analyses, I would buy them in an instant.

Excellent book 24 Feb. 2013
By Meredith Knight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Confirmatory Factor Analysis is extremely useful analytical technique, but it's not for the faint of heart. Timothy Brown has a number of years of experience as a researcher and as a professor, and provides a thorough explanation of the theory and context-rich examples in this book. Additionally, there is a website with datasets that the user can access to try out examples as an additional way to learn the material. This book is helpful for anyone who is interested in learning more about Confirmatory Factor Analysis.

#1 resource 2 Sept. 2013
By JEP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a highly readable book on CFA. A professor recommended it to me when I was working on my dissertation and now I still refer to it regularly when I'm conducting CFAs. If you are a beginner or a seasoned professional - this book has what you need.
