"Mplus is arguably the most flexible commercially available software program for SEM and all of its special cases. Geiser has provided an admirable service to the community of researchers who use Mplus with this highly readable book. The book is an indispensable companion to more advanced SEM texts and is certainly an important supplementary text for graduate courses on SEM." - David Kaplan, PhD, , University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
"More and more researchers all over the world are using Mplus. I know of no other book that provides such a truly helpful tutorial on everything from the very first steps to how to run complicated SEM models like latent growth models. Beginners will very much appreciate how much attention the author pays to the basics. Many easy-to-make mistakes can be prevented by keeping this book within arm's reach. It is perfect for researchers at any career stage seeking an accessible, informative introduction to analyzing data with Mplus." - Rens van de Schoot, PhD, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

Top Customer Reviews
Ignore any reviews that say the writer does not use M-PLUS.
As with any other SEM packages, the researcher needs to prepare the data in simple statistical packages such as SPSS or STATA. So you DO want the writer to write about this step to help you move on from SPSS to M_PLUS.
On the other hand, if you want more a book to induct you into more specialised SEM techniques, this is NOT your book.
Overall, a great introductory book that puts you into the picture quickly and effectively.
Looking forward to the follow-up advanced book coming out.

A note of caution: You will need the software, your hypothesis and databases to actually make good use of the book.
