"Understanding Biostatistics looks at the fundamentals of biostatistics, using elementary statistics and explores the nature of statistical tests, the tests that produces the p-values and basic aspects of clinical trials. The concept of distribution functions are discussed, including the Guassian distribution and its importance in biostatistics. The book also looks at problems of estimating parameters in statistical models and looks at the similarities between different models. The author does not set out to provide the definitive text on biostatistics, but rather to provide a guide to the concepts involved and their application in everyday work."--Provided by publisher.
