This concise, algebra-based text is a straight forward, clear approach to biostatistics, containing rigorous explanations of elementary methods without the “bells and whistles” associated with other books that cover this topic. Its goal is to provide a sophisticated introduction of how statistics works at a beginning level. Every concept is carefully and clearly explained, enriched by a mathematical/statistical justification, and then illustrated by at least one concrete, worked data example. Beginning with basic concepts, the text allows readers to acquire the ability to understand rather complicated statistical issues, such as linear regression theory and application.
