Multiple regression help needed

I am struggling with the concept of a forced entry linear multiple data regression. Could someone please explain what they are, why they are used, and the benefits of using them? Thanks to anyone who can offer any assistance.

In forced entry, all independent variables used in the study are included in the model, regardless of whether they are significant predictors of the dependent variable.

There are many pros and cons to the various methods of factor selection and model building.

If you Google "forced entry" and "multiple regression" you will get many hits.
