I was told that I had to use spss for a course I'm doing. But it was soooo expensive. Then I found out about PSPP. PSPP is a direct drop-in replacement which is free. And my fellow students found that it worked even better and faster than SPSS which they had paid $$$$ for.
I downloaded SPSS 19 yesterday from this site. It takes quite a while to get it downloaded, but it's ofcourse a pretty sophisticated calculating program. It's worth while, because I think it's a very clear and userfriendly program, not difficult to use at all. But keep your userguide near, I downloaded mine (a pfd-file) also from internet. And about the deal. The deal is you can use this program for free for 2 weeks. Then you have to get yourself a code or something to be able to use it after those 2 weeks. There talking about a license or something I don't know exactly anymore. The point is SPSS is a commercial program, so it isn't for free, for no one, some way some how I guess you have to pay for it eventually. And if you CAN get it downloaded for free completely,, be careful, a friend of mine told her computer had virusses and stuff after that, so it can be a bait to get you a virus, and you don't want that. (sorry if my English isnt't that good, because I'm Dutch)
