This was an easy to read, well organized review book.
D. A. Molinar
I am glad that I read this, and I didn't take any formal statistics class in college other than the crash course statistics in my upper division science classes.
Brian

This dandy little book shares the keys of understanding college biostatistics with you. It's what you need to know to pass exams, boards and the like. It provides clear instruction on the essentials of descriptive and inferential statistics, hypothesis testing, correlational techniques, research methods, and statistics in epidemiology. For those who struggle with beginning and intermediate statistics classes, it's a jewel.

I first encountered this book when it was called "Biostatistics for the Boards" when I took the course from Dr. Glaser when he was teaching at the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine in 1990. Dr. Glaser was an exceptionally good and popular teacher and the book reflects his "no-nonsense" style. At first I thought it was a "dumbed down" statistics book as I had taken a full year of stats in college and my previous books had been huge and heavy textbooks. However, I soon found that the reason Dr. Glaser's book was so brief was that he concentrates only on the type of concepts and questions you will find on the USMLE step 1. The chapters are short and it is easy to review each one many times to firmly plant the info into long term memory. I had no problems at all with the stats on the USMLE. This book presents exactly what you need to answer all the questions on the USMLE without having you waste a lot of time studying things you will never use.

Are you one of those people that are scared of Biostatistics? Fear no more!! This book is for you. It explains everything in a very smart and simple way. Plenty of examples and tests help you to master the subject. If you study this book well, you will "understand" biostatistics and you don't have to memorize nonsense informations. two thumbs up!

Let's face it, you need to know Biostatistics/Epidemiology to do well on the USMLE and this book is just what most students need, to know the concepts that are repeatedly tested on the exam. I'd recommend this book to anyone. I only give it 4 stars because the writing, at times, may get a little hard to understand.

I like the price of the book, but I wish the company had more accurate description of the condition of the book. The book has way more highlighting and writing than the company said on its website. If I new it, I would not have bought it.

I thought it was quick and straight to the point for what I needed to understand. I understood this book much better than what they had in first aid

I used this to cram for my biostatistics class as an MS1, and the material is very well explained and gives nice questions at the end of each section. I am glad that I read this, and I didn't take any formal statistics class in college other than the crash course statistics in my upper division science classes. Great read and I will see how well I am prepared for the USMLE once I take it next year~

This book is a great complement for any biostatistics book. Always a quick reference guide. Easy to understand with great examples. Very solid examples and graphs that are applicable to real-life public health situations. Great for use in any public health setting.
