**Biostatistics for the Biological and Health Sciences** brings statistical theories and methods to life with real applications, a broad range of examples, emphasis on real data and a friendly writing style. It is designed to suit a wide variety of students in their first statistics course, uses minimal algebra and will help you develop skills in critical thinking, technology and communication. This collaboration from 2 biological sciences experts and the author of the #1 statistics book is an excellent introduction that is also highly readable, understandable, interesting and relevant.

The **3rd Edition** incorporates the latest and best methods used by professional statisticians. It provides an abundance of new and interesting data sets, examples, and exercises (such as those involving clinical trials, COVID-19, biometrics, and anthropometrics); and it includes features that address all of the recommendations included in the Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) as recommended by the American Statistical Association.
