      One of the major tasks in Data Mining is classification. The growing of Decision Tree from data is a very efficient technique for learning classifiers. The selection of an attribute used to split the data set at each Decision Tree node is fundamental to properly classify objects; a good selection will improve the accuracy of the classification. In this paper, we study the behavior of the Decision Trees induced with 14 attribute selection measures over three data sets taken from UCI Machine Learning Repository.
