Product description

Review

"From the first edition this book has been the leading book on this topic, providing an authoritative and systematic treatment of SEM for both researchers and practitioners. [It is] well organised and clearly written [and] can be recommended as a textbook to teach a full course in SEM. [A] good mixture of theory and practical applications ... graduate and research students will definitely enjoy reading this book [and] practitioners may find the book useful. I would also recommend it for library purchase." - Kuldeep Kumar, Bond University, Gold Coast, in the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society

"The authors’ considerable experience as modelers and teachers really shines throughout this edition, as reflected in the accessibility and coverage of the writing, the extensive practical software examples, and the useful troubleshooting and reporting tips." - Gregory R. Hancock, University of Maryland, USA

"The authors guide us through SEM basics to more advanced techniques in an easily comprehensible style. As such, it is a great resource for both novice and veteran users of SEM." - Maria Regina Reyes, Yale University, USA

"Their step-by-step approach … makes the "how-to" extremely clear… The reader comes away not only knowing the logistics of how to run the models but also the conceptual of when to run them and how to interpret the findings. Their coverage of assumptions, data cleaning and screening, and common SEM errors is extremely refreshing for those who work with real, messy data. This is a much anticipated edition to the already classical text." - Debbie Hahs-Vaughn, University of Central Florida, USA

"There are a number of features that set this book apart ... it covers a variety of applications ... from simple regression models to highly complex analyses. ...[and] it takes a non-mathematical approach which makes [it] less intimidating.... students have found it to be quite readable and friendly ... I have continued to use it because it is the most comprehensive and helpful to students." - Philip Smith, Dept. of Ed Leadership, Counseling, & Special Education, Augusta State University, USA
