Now, there are a number of software packages that allow one to use this technique. My personal choice? AMOS (Analysis of Moment Structures for those who care!). I have analyzed a number of data sets with this program, and it provides satisfactory analysis.
Some advantages of SEM? There are a variety of "measures of fit," showing how well one's model describes the data. This is a substantial advantage over other prediction techniques, like regression, which have some fit statistics--but nothing like SEM.
Among the most useful chapters in this collection of essay: Hoyle's Introduction to SEM; Chou and Bentler on tests in SEM; Hu and Bentler's excellent essay on model fit and its evaluation (one of my most cited references when I use SEM in research); and so on.
There are several works that do a nice job outlining SEM. This volume was published in 1995, so it is a decade and a half old. Still, it is a solid work.
