The strength of this book lies in the biostatistics and epidemiology sections - they are well written. Rather than giving you several formulae to memorize, they encourage you to form an intuitive understanding of the concepts, which I prefer.
The questions in these sections are also good in that they force you to acquire a thorough understanding of those concepts.
I also appreciate the spirit of this book - it is one of the few to explain "what preventive medicine is" and is written by authors who clearly love what they do. In fact, on the spectrum of reference textbooks read by self-confessed nerds like me, it's actually fairly interesting. If I'd read this as a student or intern, I'd have gained valuable knowledge and perspective on the field of preventive medicine prior to my MPH. Reading it makes me proud of being a practitioner of preventive medicine.
That being said, in terms of nuts and bolts preparation for the board exam, this book is quite inadequate.Read more ›
is superior. The 3rd edtion has a complete
medical glossary, classical mathematIcal examples
are transfered from the 2nd edition, and at the
end of each chapter, there is a short test on the
material. No question, there are areas where
the authors, or publishers, could have been
clearer but overall, most readers will
benefit from the examples. Readers in Biostatistics and Epidemiology know these
subjects can be difficult to write about, but
I found this edition reader friendly.Is it perfect? No, but for the intermediate reader,
it fufills the need to master complex subjects.
One of the sources for this book is the
"Basic and Clinical Biostatistics", 4th, edition,
2004, Dawson, B., etc. This book received
mixed reviews from readers. I think most
readers will be satisfied with Jekel's book.A
major advantage to this text is the clear explanations of major subjects like sensitivity,
specificity, and odds ratios. Readers will be
deighted with this clear writing.
The course director much prefered the free WHO publication - Beaglehole.

The book is in a good status, but I thought I ordered the last edition and it's not what I received! Anyway, it's ok and I'll keep on using Amazon to buy my books.Published 21 months ago by Beatrix
