Book 1
Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
This is the official guide to APA style, published by the American Psychological Association. My students preferred the paperback version - as shown here - because it's less expensive and lighter if you're going to be carrying it back and forth to the computer lab.


Book 2

From Numbers to Words: Reporting Statistical Results for the Social Sciences

This is the most helpful book on statistics reporting that I've read to date, especially for students at the undergraduate level. It really helps you understand what you are reporting and why. The cover makes the book look deceptively boarding but the content is gold. My students were always pleasantly surprised by how helpful this book was when I would lend it to them.

Book 3

SPSS Survival Manual: A Step by Step Guide to Data Analysis Using SPSS for Windows
This is my student's favorite SPSS book. It really breaks using SPSS down into simple steps - similar to the content on this site. The feature my students liked best about this book is that it was spiral bound. This meant they could lay it flat on the computer lab desk while they were doing the analyses, instead of having the hold the book open and type. You can't imagine what a difference this makes.
