Books Info:

The Essentials of Political Analysis free pdf "The Essentials of Political Analysis, 3rd Edition": Student anxiety runs high given the seemingly intimidating nature of the methods course. Philip Pollock's first order of business is to get math-phobic students comfortable learning and using the tools of political analysis. Brief and accessible, his text walks students through the basics - measuring concepts, formulating and testing hypotheses, describing variables - and uses key terms, chapter-opening objectives, more than eighty tables and figures, and class-tested chapter exercises to promote skill application and aid student review. Fully up-to-date with new exercises and data, this third edition includes a new chapter devoted to measuring and describing variables, as well as fresh coverage of multiple regression and research design. "A Stata Companion to Political Analysis, 2nd Edition": Popular for its speed, flexibility, and attractive graphics, Stata is a powerful tool for political science students. With Pollock's second edition, students quickly learn Stata with step-by-step instruction, more than 50 exercises, customized datasets, annotated screen shots, boxes that highlight Stata's special capabilities, and guidance on using Stata to read raw data. Updates to this edition include: comprehensive coverage of the Stata Graph Editor- enhanced discussion of graph types, with brand-new coverage of group means and the twoway command- new and updated datasets, including GSS and NES (all datasets include additional variables for use on research papers, exams, or assignments)- new end-of-chapter exercises, which gradually increase in difficulty to reinforce and build on key concepts- and improved guidance on using Internet-available data, from downloading to inputting multiple formats- Excel, HTML, and PDF.
