EViews Tutorials

If you're a student who is just learning to use the EViews econometrics package, the tutorials that IHS (the supplier of EViews) has made available should be very helpful. You'll find them here.

There are 13 tutorials at this time, ranging from "EViews basics" to "Forecasting".

"The tutorials are split into self-contained sessions, although we recommend that new users of EViews work their way through the tutorials one by one.
Each tutorial is accompanied by data files so that you may follow the tutorials in your own copy of EViews. The data files are available in the Supporting Files side bar of each tutorial. Each tutorial is available in Microsoft Powerpoint® format, along with the data files, bundled together in a Zip file, in the Download Package area of of the side bar of each tutorial. 
You should note that the tutorials are written based on EViews 8, however the vast majority of material covered in them is applicable to earlier versions of EViews too."
Certainly, these tutorial won't tell you everything you'll want to know,  but they're a good start.

  1. The tutorial is helpful. However the examples shown in the time series estimation tutorial look like spurious regressions (R2>DW) in almost all the cases. They could have used better examples.
