Material has been drawn from a number of textbooks to provide pharmacists a study guide for the Pharmacotherapy and Ambulatory Care Board of Pharmacy Specialties examination on interpreting, evaluating, and using statistics. It begins with the basics of biostatistics and statistical tests, then moves to interpreting literature and applying it to patient care. Among specific topics are hypothesis testing, common statistical tests, power and sample size, study design, and choosing the appropriate statistical test. Answers are provided to the self-assessment questions. There is no index.
