Statistical simulation

Chapter 7 of Data Analysis Using Regression and Multilevel/Hierarchical Models by Gelman and Hill offers good description of why use statistical simulation in quantitative research. Their R package ARM provides a good place to get started to program one's own simulation module. Of course, Zelig has already had a impressive collection of models pre-programmed; but custom programming is always more fun.
