Details: Essential Biostatistics teaches students how to interpret statistical results by explaining the ideas behind statistics in nonmathematical terms. Rather than replacing longer, more traditional mathematical textbooks, this text is designed to supplement them.
With its engaging and conversational tone, this unique book provides a clear introduction to statistics for students in a wide range of fields, and also serves as a statistics refresher for working scientists. It is especially useful for those students in health-science related fields who have no background in biostatistics.
