Step 1: examine the impact of A, B, C, D, E , F, G to DV

Step 2: examine the impact of A, B, C, D, E , F, G to M1

Step 3: examine the impact of the independent variables (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) and the mediating variable (M1) to the dependent variable (DV)

Second, mediating effect of M2 between A, B, C, D, E , F, G and DV is tested through the following steps:

Step 1: examine the impact of A, B, C, D, E , F, G to DV

Step 2: examine the impact of A, B, C, D, E , F, G to M2

Step 3: examine the impact of the independent variables (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) and the mediating variable (M2) to the dependent variable (DV)

Finally, author test the mediation effect of both m1 and m2 in the relationship between (A, B, C, D, E , F, G and the DV

Step 1: examine the impact of the (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) to the dependent variable DV

Step 2: examine the impact of the (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) to the the mediating variables (M1 and M2).

Step 3: examine the impact of the mediating variables (M1 AND M2) and the independent variables (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) affects the dependent variable (DV)

Are all the steps above correct? Or do I have to adjust any steps?

Step 1: examine the impact of A, B, C, D, E , F, G to DV

Step 2: examine the impact of A, B, C, D, E , F, G to M1

Step 3: examine the impact of the independent variables (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) and the mediating variable (M1) to the dependent variable (DV)

Second, mediating effect of M2 between A, B, C, D, E , F, G and DV is tested through the following steps:

Step 1: examine the impact of A, B, C, D, E , F, G to DV

Step 2: examine the impact of A, B, C, D, E , F, G to M2

Step 3: examine the impact of the independent variables (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) and the mediating variable (M2) to the dependent variable (DV)

Finally, author test the mediation effect of both m1 and m2 in the relationship between (A, B, C, D, E , F, G and the DV

Step 1: examine the impact of the (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) to the dependent variable DV

Step 2: examine the impact of the (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) to the the mediating variables (M1 and M2).

Step 3: examine the impact of the mediating variables (M1 AND M2) and the independent variables (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) affects the dependent variable (DV)
