What will I get?

You’ll get access to zip file containing a full set of training notes from our popular Introduction to SPSS training course, as well as all the data that’s used during the training course. The notes cover in detail everything that’s covered in that course, as a step-by-step teach yourself guide, and the data files enable you to follow along, exactly as you would if you attended the training in person.

Previously the only way to get hold of these notes would have been to book onto the training course, but we know it’s not always practical to do that so we’re making the notes available as a standalone product.

Who should buy these notes?

The notes give you everything you need to be able to teach yourself how to use SPSS from scratch, or to brush up on a particular topic. They’ll be a useful resource that you can refer to again and again.

Can I have a look at these notes before I buy?

Yes, by all means. You can download one sample chapter of the notes for free.

Can I get access to additional help once I have the notes?

Yes, our SPSS Boost service is ideal for this, and we also offer guided online training sessions completely tailored to your requirements.

What happens after I place my order?

We’ll send you a zip file that contains everything you need. When you open up the zip file you’ll see a PDF of the training notes, along with a folder called SV Training which contains all the other materials you need. We suggest you create a folder called c: SV Training and save everything in there.
