I personally love the book since it covers the software from A-Z and it’s very easy to navigate.
green quote
Anything I searched for like chi-square was there and I was able to get to it with a click on the screen from the index page.There is a catch, I was first hesitant about buying the book since the rating on Amazon wasn’t that great, but after I read the reviews, I realized that the complaints & the low rating were because most of these reviewers if not all of them received hard copies that were missing a number of pages.
green quote
I strongly recommend the book, but to stay on the safe side I would recommend the kindle edition, specially that it connects every single part in the book to a companion website that has a screen cast.

It’s showing the link to the screen cast on the companion website, and also how to get to it from the drop down menu in the software.
green quote
It is very useful, and the instructions are easy to follow.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

It depends on what you are looking for. Let's go over the reasons why buying this political science book now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $106.83 $39.69

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has gone up, resulting in a 19.83% price increase.

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this political science book was $106.83, and the lowest price point was $39.69. The current price isn't close to either the highest or the lowest price point, so it's a fairly reasonable time to make this purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, the price tends to stay more or less the same. Not a lot of price movement is expected, but the price could still move in either direction by a smidge.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $73.22 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

2. Make sure CQ Press is a brand you can trust

CQ Press doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other political science book brands. I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

3. Manufacturer has generally positive reviews on their other products

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. The manufacturer of this product, CQ Press, has generally positive reviews on the internet. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, and if you like this product, I'd go with this product!

4. There are other options you might want to check out

5. This political science book has debatable reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This political science book has debatablereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this political science book more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon
