Principles of Biostatistics, Second Edition 

$198.00 each Buy 




Comment from the Stata technical groupThe second edition of Principles of Biostatistics by Marcello Pagano and Kimberlee Gauvreau has developed into a wonderful tool for the modern classroom. The Review Exercises sections in each of the 22 chapters have at least doubled in size since the first edition, making it easier for instructors to give examples in lectures and assign problems, and giving students more opportunities to apply what they have learned in the chapters. Among the many improvements, the probability chapter has been expanded to include visual representations of probability concepts with Venn diagrams, and the graphical concepts described in the Data Presentation chapter have been carried through to all chapters in the text.
