Overview

Medical Statistics at a Glance provides a concise and accessible introduction and revision aid for undergraduate medical students and anyone wanting a straightforward introduction to this complex subject. Following the familiar, easy-to-use at a Glance format, each topic is presented as a double-page spread with key facts accompanied by clear, informative tables, formulae and graphs.

This new edition of Medical Statistics at a Glance:

  • Contains a second colour throughout to enhance the visual appeal, making the subject even easier to understand
  • Features worked examples on each topic, with emphasis on computer analysis of data rather than hand calculations
  • Includes new topics on Rates and Poisson regression, Generalised linear models, Explanatory variables in statistical models and Regression models for clustered data.
  • Has an accompanying website http://www.medstatsaag.com/containing supplementary material including multiple choice questions (MCQs) with annotated answers for self-assessment

Medical Statistics at a Glance will appeal to all medical students, junior doctors and researchers in biomedical and pharmaceutical disciplines.

Reviews of the last edition

"All medical professionals will come across statistics in their daily work and so a proper understanding of these concepts is invaluable. This is brought to you in this easily comprehensible succinct textbook.

.I unreservedly recommend this book to all medical students, especially those that dislike reading reams of text. This is one book that will not sit on your shelf collecting dust once you have graduated and will also function as a reference book."
