5.0 out of 5 stars A down-to-earth guide to SEM without too much maths, 15 May 2001
By A Customer
With Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) becoming an important statistical tool, this book serves as an excellant guide to the topic. It covers the rudimentary topics that are important in SEM (e.g., sample size, interpretation of goodness of fit indices) as well as a short chapter on some advanced topics (e.g., Bootstrap methods, interactions). Lots of examples included at the end of each chapter as well as one chapter devoted to complete examples (i.e., from formulating models, command lines for the computer package and interpretation of outputs)! Though the many examples stated in the book involve using EQS5 and LISREL8 computer packages, even if the reader does not have these programs, the book is still very useful. If you ever wanted to ask what this or that mean in a SEM analysis that you are doing or have read - this book most probably has the answers! Personally, I have found this to be a helpful introduction to SEM without too much distracting mathematical details. My advice - GET IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just useful, 10 Mar 2013

James Tighe - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
If you are an intermediate statistician (i.e. you are well grounded in regression in all its forms and aspects) then this will help you on the journey to being advanced. SEQ is difficult but incredibly powerful and use hIt takes you through the process one step at a time and briefly reviews some of the background you need. But don't expect to get enough background just from the book.
I think it is now out of print - I got my copy second hand. But an update and re-release would be a good idea.

4.0 out of 5 stars good depth of content, 4 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Beginner's Guide to Structural Equation Modeling: Third Edition (Paperback)
content i would rate 4/5.

not for dummies though.

not many books do a good SEM book for people/students just wanting to complete a dissertation.
