"The skill and knowledge sets for evaluating and using SEM have become important components of social science education. Kline provides a text that is accessible for graduate students, practitioners, and researchers who are not intimately familiar with SEM techniques. In addition, he effortlessly summarizes current information that researchers who already use SEM should have. The reorganization of the material, new topic boxes, new Web page, and updated technical information enhance an already great resource. A major strength of the book is the individual chapter examples with explanation of the values provided from a variety of statistical analysis packages. I will continue to use this third edition as the primary text in my SEM course, and highly recommend it as both a text and a technical resource."--James B. Schreiber, PhD, Center for Advancing the Study of Teaching and Learning, Duquesne University
"In the third edition, Kline has improved the pedagogical value of his book relative to prior editions and to other SEM books. The many exercises help a reader understand how to apply important chapter concepts, making the book not only useful for an SEM course, but also an effective resource for self-study. The Web page featuring complete computer syntax and data for the examples is very helpful. Other new material further supports a reader’s understanding of SEM; for example, Chapter 2 provides more information on multiple regression/correlation, and the chapter on data preparation has been expanded to cover important topics such as positive-definite matrices, which are among the most common problems researchers experience when using SEM. This edition also provides more information on available SEM software, including an entire chapter on the use of computer software."--Craig Wells, PhD, School of Education, University of Massachusetts-Amherst

The explanation of path theory was randomly dense and unintelligible. They are definitely not writing for neophytes.
The book is very nicely structured and it is easy to follow
