A famous Englishman once said, “Hope is generally a wrong guide, though it is good company along the way.” (Sir George Savile)

Luckily for you, we can provide both the hope and the guidance you need to begin your research project, especially if you’ve never seen, touched, or heard of the software before. SSRL consultants have written step-by-step guides to help you get started on some of the software we support in the lab. Most of the guides are accompanied by data so you can practice the software with problem sets created by the author. The guides are broken down into simple, easy-to-understand terms, so they are great for first-time users of the software.

Available guides include: EViews, GAUSS, Gretl, Matlab, Python, R, SPSS, Statcrunch, STATA, Systat, SAS, and Dreamweaver. You can find these in print in both the SSRL and SPA labs, or if you want to stay green, online on the CTRL website.  While you’re visiting the site, you will see there are other useful guides on how to use Microsoft Office and other media tools.

And like a famous samurai once said, “Knowledge is the craft of the warrior. The mightier your software skills are, the more awesome your research project will be! Hi-ya!” …er, or something like that.

If you have any questions about these guides, just ask a consultant in the lab.
