"I have been using Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis for the past five years and have enjoyed the many features of this software including the numerous options for fitting data into the spreadsheet for analysis of categorical and continuous data and the ease of labeling variables and study names. The built in analysis features are many and easy to apply including the test for heterogeneity and Egger’s test for publication bias. This software has allowed me to publish meta‐analyses with confidence in several peer reviewed journals including the Journal of Cardiology. Also I am often asked to give lectures on the use of meta‐analyses. My demonstrations include examples from this program. When asked by my peers for a reliable meta‐analysis package I do recommend this software."

"Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis (CMA) is a must‐have tool for academic instructors, researchers, and statisticians alike. Developed by a strong team of highly recognized experts in the field, CMA meets all of your meta‐analysis needs and is easy to teach and easy to use. I would not attempt to ever conduct another meta‐analysis without using the CMA program, for the difference is between heaven and earth!"
