Publisher Synopsis

"Substantial improvements have been incorporated into this new edition, including a focus on individual SEM model applications and illustrations using multiple software platforms. This is a must own for novice and expert SEM users alike." -Tiffany Whittaker, University of Texas at Austin, USA "Anyone involved in the application of Structural Equation Modeling will definitely treasure this updated edition of a guide now considered a classic. The manual provides a step-by-step pragmatic approach to each type of model and offers extensive information on important issues and techniques not covered in most introductory SEM textbooks." -Greta Mazzetti, University of Bologna, Italy"This is a simply written, easy to follow book. It effortlessly transitions the learner from the theory of SEM to its applications. It can be used to teach introductory level courses on SEM. I highly recommend it for self-learning." - Kanupriya Katyal, Goa Institute of Management, India"Schumacker and Lomax provide excellent narratives on the purpose, process, and effective use of numerous SEM techniques and methods. Additionally, I have discovered students and faculty value their texts as trusted academic resources!" - Sean W. Mulvenon, University of Arkansas, USA"I really like the accessibility of this book. ... Making the new edition more software independent [is] a huge plus. ...The way the authors write was what made me choose this book. ... It was the only book that was a broad overview of SEM ... and accessible to my graduate students. ...Given the changes ...I would consider it for adoption again." - Linda Shanock, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, USA"The authors write clearly ...by taking an accessible, application-oriented, and non-mathematical approach. Although SEM is an advanced quantitative topic that could easily become very complicated, the book does a great job in making it as simple as possible. ...The book is ...great for ...graduate students taking the first SEM course. ...This book is a classic SEM textbook and has been highly reputable for its breadth of SEM topics (much better than all of its competing titles)."- Hongwei Yang, University of Kentucky, USA"[I] would ... seriously consider [the 4th ed] for adoption ... for the same reasons I ... preferred the 3rd ed. over other textbooks: The non-mathematical approach, easy to read, accessibility, [and] the use of the SEM Modeling steps." - Jos Schijns, Open Universiteit, The Netherlands"This book gives me what I need to get the students going, it well-grounds them in the basics, and it sets up a number of advanced topics that I can elaborate on. ... This book is appropriate for an introductory graduate course on structural equation modeling, or for professionals who want to learn SEM." - Craig Parks, Washington State University, USA"I would definitely recommend this text to both current graduate students as well as faculty who may not have been exposed to SEM. ... I teach at the graduate level. ... This would be ideal as one of the texts for the course ... in a Criminal Justice department, and ... a Sociology or other Social Science program. ... It covers many important topics." - Brian A. Lawton, George Mason University, USA"One real strength of the book surrounds the inclusion of instructions for a variety SEM software packages, such as AMOS, R and MPlus to conduct analyses. This aids readers to follow the process in a step-by-step process to complete their SEM. Schumacker and Lomax's clear approach provides novices in this area, like myself, with a real sense of understanding about the analysis they are performing. This is done without overwhelming the reader with statistical jargon." -Natalie Harrison, PhD, University of Central Lancashire Read more...
