The authors have used their experience as masters’ and doctorate class teachers of the European College of Pharmaceutical Medicine (EC Socrates Project) in putting this text together. They have found, from their experience, that performing statistical analysis on a calculator to be a useful aid for the students learning and that statistical results can be obtained much quicker than using a statistical software package. For a short book it has a considerable number of chapters, each one being very brief. This is not a comprehensive statistical book and the reader needs to know when and why they use the relevant statistical techniques. There are a very small number of exercises for the reader to test their understanding and in some chapters there are no exercises at all. This book seems to be aimed at a niche market and does not have a great deal of explanation on the statistical techniques employed. If a student knows what they are doing, statistically speaking, then it is a good quick guide.

Also, a number of statistical methods can be performed more easily on a pocket calculator, than using a software program … … Also, some analytical methods, for example, power calculations and required sample size calculations, are difficult on a statistical software program and easy on a pocket calculator. This book reviews the pocket calculator methods together with practical examples, both hypothesized and real patient data … BEST! SlideRule
