Topics and Further Reading
Several internet sites
devoted to SEM that are relevant to the class.
A great website with introductory material on most SEM topics. Download
a very good introductory book, Correlation
and Causality, for free.
An excellent site that serves as a gateway to most of the SEM sites on the web.
I encourage you to join and read this SEM discussion list. You can also search
the archives for answers to common questions.
Lots of example programs and a Mplus
A list which I have put together of hundreds of references for many SEM topics.
