"I have now used Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis in five meta‐analyses and highly recommend it. Its structure and accompanying resources particularly assist researchers with clinical rather than statistical backgrounds to avoid important errors in data entry and analysis. Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis enables meta‐analysis methods recommended by leading statisticians and meta‐analysts to be used by researchers internationally."

"The program is a perfect companion to Borenstein et al's book since it allowed my students to try the concepts discussed in the book. We have done most of the computations by hand first and then checked our answers with CMA. This gave the students 'a feel' for meta‐analysis and made them realise that the method is not just about feeding some abstract numbers into a black box and getting a meaningless number at the end. Instead, using the book and the program together the students learned the maths behind the computations and the meaning of the final results. I found the help manual especially user‐friendly and ready for classroom use. My students were able to get most of the exercises done at home such that we had the time to discuss the answers and their implications in class."
