Organization - Pg. viii

Preface · Organization viii Organization This book is designed like a cookbook. Find what you need, and follow the steps. We have organized the contents of this book to reflect both the process of analyzing data (getting data, analyzing it, and sharing the results) and the progression from the very basic features in JMP to more specialized ones. We hope this organization offers the most value to the reader. Much of our judgment in this regard comes from our experience working one-on-one with new JMP users. · Chapter 1 covers the preliminary material you'll need for the rest of the book. The chapter identifies the conventions we use and introduces you to JMP menus, windows, and preferences. · Chapter 2 covers the first step in any analysis: getting your data into JMP or creating it. With the exception of some material in Chapter 2, other chapters are self-contained, and you can read them in any order. · Chapters 3 through 6 cover graphing and analysis: Chapter 3 is for the user who knows what graph he or she wants. Chapter 4 is for the user who does not know what the data says and needs to explore it to find an appropriate graph or summary. Hinrichs, Curt, and Boiler, Chuck .
