    I need to be an expert on it by the end of the year - we're examined on it, and it's something i hate. I also hate running off to labs to do my coursework, it'd feel so great just having SPSS software in my room!

    But the price is.... £210 !!! :eek:

    Can you not find a book in the library which has a copy of the software in it that you can use? I'm sure we've got one... not sure on the title though.

    I wouldn't buy it, and we've got exams on it at the end of the year too. The library is only down the road and can pop in at any time, so i'd just use it in there =]

    Definitely buy it.

    It's not going to be £210 though, your university will probably have a deal to provide temporary copies for much less. My undergrad university charged £20 PC/£35 mac, postgrad charges £4/£2.

    I got a copy from my uni, (sheffield) for £4. Its well worth having but you can't copy the cd off a friend or download it as once you install the programme you are actually required to send off an email to register where you state your university, which module you use it for and you details. Only then after reviewing all these things they send you the activation code..

    My department sells copies for £1.
    It's likely somewhere in your Uni will too.

    Can everyone take note - please don't advise him to try downloading it for free, in whichever way. It's illegal.

    DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT buy the SPSS package . . .just get the disk from your IT department at Uni and download it onto you PC or laptop. Its what I have done and have it for a year.
