Subject: Re: Handbook of Survey Research and SPSS Survival Manual (New
If it looks to good to be true...? I'm very wary of sites like that, but I did have a peek. There's another site offering the same thing, but I can't find it now.
Incidentally I just came across an interesting looking book, Leonard Bickman and Debra Rog [Eds] Handbook of Applied Social Research Methods (link is to Google Books and there are plenty of preview pages). Bit wider than survey research, but the BA Applied Social Studies (Social Research) I designed and ran at PNL was exactly this: a book like this would have been very handy. As usual the Americans are much better at this sort of thing than the Brits, who are only just recovering from Althusser, Cicourel et et al.

Hi John. Here is the McAffee SiteAdvisor report on that site with the
(apparently) free download of Pallant's 4th edition:
They have not yet finished testing, but note the User Review Summary at the
bottom of the page. Personally, I'd be a bit careful about downloading from
that site for now.
