Reviews

"Designed for courses and preventive medicine board review, the book covers basic and important topics in epidemiology, statistics, preventive medicine, and public health, providing a breadth of information in a concise and intelligible manner. The authors are authorities in their field and they have gathered experts as contributors. Easy to read figures and tables are visually pleasing and help to emphasize key points. Biostatistics can be a daunting subject, and the authors do an excellent job of presenting this information in an understandable way. The authors have taken a wealth of information and condensed it into an easy-to-read book." - Mindi J TenNapel, MBA MS (University of Iowa College of Public Health), Excerpts from Doody's review service, Rating - 5 Stars!
