The Problem With Current SPSS Books and Videos

I'm Jacob Mays, founder of, an online SPSS training resource for students, instructors, and professionals. Over the years, I've heard many complaints about the SPSS training books and videos that members of my web site have used. Students often complain about how confusing SPSS books are, particularly students taking online courses who don't have the benefit of a live instructor. Instead, these students are asked to learn SPSS on their own by following the often confusing instructions and screen shots of their SPSS books. These SPSS books can be very difficult for students who don't know or haven't taken statistics in several years. Even professors lament to me about the poor quality of some of the SPSS books. Additionally, many of my members live in countries where broadband access is either not widely available and/or very expensive. So, watching videos on the internet isn't a viable option for them. So, I began to look for a solution.

I searched through many SPSS books and online video tutorials, looking for something I could recommend to my members, but I just couldn't find what I was looking for. I needed something that provided the portability and detailed explanations of an SPSS book, but also the step-by-step visual guide of video tutorials. The SPSS books I found were very detailed, but many were confusing to non-statisticians and only a few had quality SPSS screen shots.

The videos I found were inconsistent in quality and limited in detail. They never included a detailed description of the tests, nor did they include interpretation of the SPSS output. I needed something that had the benefits of both an SPSS book and SPSS video tutorials. So, I decided to do something that had never been done before. I created an SPSS manual that contained both text and video. I call it the SPSS Video Manual.
