"The bestselling text that has been so popular with graduate students and researchers for providing an accessible guide to the application, interpretation, and pitfalls of structural equation modeling (SEM) has now been carefully revised to be even more useful. New to this edition are: The first SEM text web page, offering free access to data and program syntax files for many of the research examples in the book, electronic overheads that readers can download and print, and links to other useful sites ; separate chapters that review fundamental statistical concepts: one on correlation and regression (providing a foundation for less advanced readers), and another on data preparation and screening ; more coverage of the relation between measurement models and structural models in Chapter 8, which directly compares both types of models ; new, separate chapters on nonrecursive models of multiple-sample SEM in Part III, including extensive explanations of latent growth models in Chapter 10 and multilevel SEM in Chapter 13"--Publisher's description.
