Draft notes for the SPSS courses for versions 16, 17 & 18 can now be found on the IS stats wiki which requires an ease authentication at: https://www.wiki.ed.ac.uk/display/ISstatsComp/SPSS+Course+documentation
The SPSS courses have been reorganised into half day courses, course notes for the half day courses and copies of SPSS published manuals for SPSS 14 and 15 can be found at: http://www.ucs.ed.ac.uk/usd/cts/catalogue/ISCatData.html#Datastats
These are copies of course notes I've worked on in Adobe Acrobat's PDF format*. Available documents are course notes for SPSS versions 14 & 15, 13, 12, and 11 and 11.5. The final versions should appear in the IS publications list.
We also have access to an older SPSS Inc on-line training library for version 10 also has some useful notes on organising research. More notes and on-line tutorials are available from other universities and SPSS themselves, details on the spss references page.
