3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was hoping for, October 10, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Handbook of Statistical Analyses Using Stata, Third Edition (English and Chinese Edition) (Paperback)
I bought this book as a complete STATA novice and have been quite disappointed with it. First, there is very little information on data input which was one of the first things I needed to do in order to be able to use the program (another reviewer also noted this). I spent much more time on various STATA websites getting answers to my questions than I did consulting the book, simply because the book didn't have what I needed as a beginner. Others I have loaned it to have said similar things, and ultimately end up using a different book or the websites as I did. That said, it does seem to have quite a bit of useful information if you have some background STATA knowledge and experience, so it's not a total dud. My best advice is to avoid this if you are completely new to STATA.
