"Since I bought Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis Version 2 about three years ago, it has become a faithful companion that is very easy to use, can be intuitively understood and offers all the options necessary for my meta‐analyses."

Stefan Leucht, MD - Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Technische, Universit Mnchen, Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Munich Germany

"I’ve been using Comprehensive meta‐analysis for some time now and I find it a very user‐friendly and indeed comprehensive software when compared to other software. Some meta analysis functions are present in the latest version of NCSS (Number Cruncher Statistical System), but much less, as this is a more general statistical package; specific meta analysis software like Revman and MIX are less easy to use. Especially in combination with the online course on meta analysis of Michael Borenstein, this software can be warmly recommended without reservation."
