Methamphetamine and CNS effects
Methamphetamine is a schedule II controlled substance, which means it has a high potential for abuse and is available only through a prescription that cannot be refilled. Methamphetamine or...

direct and indirect effects of an independent variable on a dependent variable comprises
the total effect between the variables (Hoyle, 1995).
Identification is an important consideration in model specification. In essence,
implied covariance matrix and the observed matrix are used to calculate the residual
matrix. The smaller the residual matrix, the better the model estimation, thus iteration
continues until the residual matrix is minimized (Hoyle, 1995). This...

The most probable obstacle facing many unmotivated readers is a lack of self-confidence.
