Readership: Students, researchers, and teachers involved with Clinical data analysis.

The authors have used their experience as masters’ and doctorate class teachers of the European

College of Pharmaceutical Medicine (EC Socrates Project) in putting this text together. They

have found, from their experience, that performing statistical analysis on a calculator to be a

useful aid for the students learning and that statistical results can be obtained much quicker than

using a statistical software package.

For a short book it has a considerable number of chapters, each one being very brief. This

is not a comprehensive statistical book and the reader needs to know when and why they use

the relevant statistical techniques. There are a very small number of exercises for the reader

to test their understanding and in some chapters there are no exercises at all. This book seems

to be aimed at a niche market and does not have a great deal of explanation on the statistical

techniques employed. If a student knows what they are doing, statistically speaking, then it is a

good quick guide.
