Amazing resource for Step 1

Excellent and concise Step 1 review of biostatistics. The questions at the end are excellent indicators in measuring your grasp of the information. It is a book that you can hit hard for a day or two of Step 1 studying and feel confident that you know your stuff well. Thumbs up to Dr. Glaser. Keep up the good work!

Excellent review of the basics

I should first clarify that I read this book for personal interest, not as a medical student, so I'm not really part of the target audience. I was attracted to the book because of the "high-yield" part of the title. I was seeking a book which very concisely and clearly lays out the key ideas of biostatistics, without getting bogged down by overexplanation or esoteric details, and I wasn't disappointed. Just beware of two limitations inherent in a book like this. First, since this is a concise review book, you need to have a basic comfort level with math in order to learn from it. Second, the focus is on the basics, so the book doesn't cover all of the statistics you'll encounter when reading biomedical literature. However, within the scope of these limitations, this is certainly an excellent book which I can recommend.

Extremely Board Specific

I first encountered this book when it was called "Biostatistics for the Boards" when I took the course from Dr. Glaser when he was teaching at the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine in 1990. Dr. Glaser was an exceptionally good and popular teacher and the book reflects his "no-nonsense" style. At first I thought it was a "dumbed down" statistics book as I had taken a full year of stats in college and my previous books had been huge and heavy textbooks. However, I soon found that the reason Dr. Glaser's book was so brief was that he concentrates only on the type of concepts and questions you will find on the USMLE step 1. The chapters are short and it is easy to review each one many times to firmly plant the info into long term memory. I had no problems at all with the stats on the USMLE. This book presents exactly what you need to answer all the questions on the USMLE without having you waste a lot of time studying things you will never use.

The best source for USMLE

Are you one of those people that are scared of Biostatistics? Fear no more!! This book is for you. It explains everything in a very smart and simple way. Plenty of examples and tests help you to master the subject. If you study this book well, you will "understand" biostatistics and you don't have to memorize nonsense informations. two thumbs up!

Statistics in a Nutshell

This dandy little book shares the keys of understanding college biostatistics with you. It's what you need to know to pass exams, boards and the like. It provides clear instruction on the essentials of descriptive and inferential statistics, hypothesis testing, correlational techniques, research methods, and statistics in epidemiology. For those who struggle with beginning and intermediate statistics classes, it's a jewel.
