The fourth edition of A Short Course is now available as a free PDF. This popular text provides a concise, yet thorough introduction to the field of epidemiology. The book covers the basic concepts and principles of epidemiology, as well as more advanced topics such as study design, data analysis, and interpretation.
The authors have made numerous revisions and additions in this edition, in response to feedback from users of the previous edition. They have also added new material on topics such as mensuration and biostatistics. As with the previous editions, this book is intended for use by students in public health and medical schools, as well as practicing epidemiologists.
Derived from the classic text originated by Lubert Stryer and continued by John Tymoczko and Jeremy Berg, Biochemistry: A Short Course focuses on the major topics taught in a one-semester biochemistry course. With its brief chapters and relevant examples, this thoroughly updated new edition helps students see the connections between the biochemistry they are studying and their own lives.
