Reviews

Hayduk is equally at ease explaining the simplest and most advanced applications of the program... Hayduk has written more than just a solid text for use in advanced graduate courses on statistical modeling. Those with a firm mathematical background who wish to learn about the approach, or those who know a little about the program and want to know more, will find this an excellent reference.

This is a fine book for providing persons who have a basic knowledge of regression and matrix algebra with a detailed understanding of LISREL. It is strong on explanation, on clarity, and on breadth of coverage.
