  • 1. Biostatistics
  • 2. Practicalstatistics Introductory Biostatistics CHAP T. LE, Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of Minnesota, USA Taking a problems-based approach full of real-world examples, the text slowly and methodically builds understanding and mastery of the fundamentals of biostatistics. It briefly covers data collection and then expands on the subjects of descriptive statistics, statistical inference, probability, and probability models. Such features as “Brief Notes on the Fundamentals,” end-of- chapter notes on computations using Excel, and samples of SAS computer programs strengthen the reader’s grasp of the background and the concepts of biostatistical procedures. 0471 41816 1 May 2003 536pp Hbk £63.50 / €90.50 Introductory Biostatistics for the Health Sciences Modern Applications Including Bootstrap MICHAEL R.
