Thank you so much for your answer. I have more Questions.
(1) You said, each cluster has 3 members. But, each cluster has the different members. But, is it fine??
(2) Yes! I don't have x and w variables. But, I confuse the define x and w variables. So, could you say to me about definition? Because, I think I wil must consider about the subject and waves relations.
(3) If I still don't have a x and w variables, it is fine?
(4) I can't fine the Raudenbush-Bryk or Boskersisnijer books. So,if it is not bother you, could you tell me the book name?
(5) If I have a time, I will go this short courses.

1. Yes, the clusters (families) can have different number of members.
2. In the example in the UG, x is a level-1 variable (varying over siblings) and w is a level-2 variable (varying over families).
4. See the Mplus web site reference list.
5. That's an efficient way to learn a lot in a short time, and where you can also ask questions.
