Each chapter on the various aspects of Epi (ie, Confounding, Effect Modification, Random Error, Bias, Causation, etc) is readable, relatively short chapters (no more then 20 pages) and very clearly explains the necessary information. Each chapter then has a concise (less then one page) summary, perfect for test studying or board review. In addition, each chapter has test questions with answers posted at the back of the book. This book even explains the underlying mathmetical principles better then most statistic texts I've used.
While you could probably get through Epidemialogy just reading the lecture notes, this book will guarantee you understand it (with out spending too much time) and get a 4.0.
