Editorial Reviews


"Excellent discussion of experimental design and statistical inference. Includes good examples."--Thomas Fairchild, University of New Hampshire, Durham

"Well-written! Covers the material I want to cover."--Jane Keller-Byrne, Medical College of Ohio

"Novel in its presentation of the material."--Edward Meydrech, University of Mississippi Medical Center

"Very useful for the Ph.D. students in our school, in particular in their qualifying phase of doctoral studies."--Jerrold Michael, University of Hawaii

"As healthcare research assumes a renewed importance in this country, Zolman's text provides solid guidance through the concepts and methodologies to make students better researchers and consumers of research."--Roger Ritvo, University of New Hampshire

"Well-written! Good examples for the students in the biological sciences."--Beverly Vilicer, University of Massachusetts

"Good discussion of basic concepts in methodology and statistics. The section on design problems and critique is especially good."--David Katerndahl, University of Texas

"An interesting and fresh approach--definitely fills a need in the literature."--Paul Jones, Case Western Reserve University

"The book has many strong points, including the outstanding collection of well-presented, real examples." --Choice

"Here is a book for experimental biologists who design and interpret their own experiments as well as critically evaluate articles and papers in their field....Has some good features. There is much to be learned from the research design problems....The figures, tables, and flow charts in the first part of the book are helpful and great for reference....The intended audience of experimental biologists will gain much from this book." --Journal of the American Statistical Association

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Matt McCurdy on June 21, 2001
Format: Hardcover
What makes this book stand out from other books on biostatistics is the 100 summarized and briefly critiqued experiments in the second half of the book. I found that critiquing the experiments and comparing to the author's critique dragged me kicking and screaming to a better understanding of statistics in biological experiments. The book has trained me to quickly review other experiments well.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The first half of the textbook is devoted to teaching statistical concepts, with a focus on ANOVA, used in analyzing bench experiments. What is novel is the use of the 'hypertext' method, in which statistical terms and concepts are referenced to guide the reader to different sections in the book to learn, eventually relearn, the topic; an interesting approach in teaching statistics. The last half of the textbook are 100 teaching cases identifying common faults in the design or reasoning when developing research questions. I suggest readers follow his approach and utilize this teaching method to assimilate this important science.
