SAS for Mixed Models
SAS for Mixed Models
Paperback      ISBN: 1590475003
Mixed linear models are a standard part of most graduate-level statistics courses but, according to the authors (a team of statisticians from the U. of Florida, Kansas State U., U. of Nebraska, and SAS Institute) of this text, students and practicing statisticians frequently retain questions about the proper application of mixed model methodologies. They provide guidance on the implementation of mixed models in the statistical software package SAS 9.1. Examples are taken from a wide range of application areas and range from introductory examples to technically advanced case studies. New to this edition are chapters on diagnostics for mixed models based on residuals and influence analysis, calculation of statistical power of tests, and mixed modeling from a Bayesian perspective. The CD-ROM contains all of the data sets used in the book as well as the SAS code necessary to perform the mixed model analyses. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Windows 7: The Missing Manual
Windows 7
The Missing Manual
Paperback      ISBN: 0596806396
Early reports on Windows 7 are encouraging: Those who've seen it applaud the way it fixes some of Vista's most painful shortcomings. It's speedier, has fewer intrusive and nagging screens, and is generally much more compatible with peripherals. Plus, Microsoft has introduced a slew of new features, including things like fast-access searching and better organization tools, easier WiFi connections and home networking setup, and even touchscreen computing for those lucky enough to own the latest hardware. The biggest downside? Learning how to navigate through all this new territory, starting with which of the four versions of Windows 7 you have (Starter, Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate). Thankfully, Windows 7: The Missing Manual will be there to help--a single book that offers coverage of all four versions. Like its predecessors, this book from New York Times columnist, bestselling author, and Missing Manuals creator David Pogue illuminates its subject with technical insight, plenty of wit, and hardnosed objectivity for beginners, veteran standalone PC users, and those who know their way around a network. This jargon-free book explains Windows 7 features so clearly -- revealing which work well and which don't - that it should have been in the box in the first place.
