If you already know the principles of general linear modeling (GLM) you are on the right path to understand Structural Equation Modeling (SEM).
As you could see from my previous post, SEM offers the flexibility of adding paths between predictors in a way that would take you several GLM models and still leave you with unanswered questions.
It also helps you use latent variables (as you will see in future posts).
GLM is just one of the pieces of the puzzle to fit SEM to your data. You also need to have an understanding of:
