SPSS AMOS is a Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) Software.

Amos is a powerful structural equation modeling (SEM) software helping support your research and theories by extending standard multivariate analysis methods, including regression, factor analysis, correlation, and analysis of variance. Build attitudinal and behavioral models reflecting complex relationships more accurately than with standard multivariate statistics techniques using either an intuitive graphical or programmatic user interface.

The series of tutorials will cover different topics from basic to advance and will help the researchers learn how to perform structural equation modelling using AMOS.
