Well-Written Text for Beginners, February 3, 2005

I’m taking my first biostatistics class with W. Daniel’s Biostatistics text. It’s a good book, but I think it’s for more advanced statistics students. Munro’s text is more suitable for beginners who have never taken any statistics class. It explains the basic but important statistical concepts in plain English without using much mathematics. Very well written and easy to understand. The exercises at the end of each chapter are well picked. They are short, yet helpful for reviewing the important concepts that have just been covered.
