0 Reviews

The text is presented in chunks of approximately 10 True/False questions on specific concepts in research methodology and statistics. This is followed by clear explanations, from first principles, that assume no prior knowledge. This book is for the paper critique section of the MRCPsych 2 examination but clinical tutors, organisers of journal clubs and clinicians interested in research will find the book helpful. It is particularly invaluable for clinicians interested in evidence based medicine.

This book is intended to be used as an aide memoir, carried in the pocket and referred to as often as necessary. It enables self-assessment to be carried out in the hope that any gaps in knowledge will be identified. Much of this book focuses on practical application of statistical and research methodology concepts into critical paper reading. The reader is encouraged to attempt the questions before the reading the suggested answers.
