High yield- biostatistics , epidemiology , and public health

This book aims to fill the need for a short, down-to-earth, high-yield survey of biostatistics, and judging by the demand for a fourth edition, it seems to have succeeded so far.

One big change in this edition: in anticipation of an expected major expansion of the material to be included in the USMLE Content Outline, with the inclusion of Epidemiology and Population Health, this book covers much more material.

The USMLE (US Medlcal Licensing Examination) is also focusing more and more on material that will be relevant to the practicing physician, who needs to be an intelligent and critical reader of the vast amount of medical information that appears daily, not only in the professional literature but also in pharmaceutical advertising, news media, and websites, and are often brought in by patients bearing printouts and reports of TV programs they have seen. USMLE is taking heed of these changes, which can only be for the better.
