Unhappy How to improve Biostats?

Biostats somehow gets onto my nerves!! not that I don't like math, I do, but I feel Kaplan Lecture notes aren't that good enough to understand the logic! or may be its just me! what should I do to improve?

The best approach in learning biostat is doing questions. Try the qbanks first. If you need more questions, there's the uworld biostat review for $25. There's also Pre-Test Preventive Medicine. If you can find an online pdf of that, the first few chapters are just questions on biostat.

That's just my opinion. Good luck!!

By the way, have you tried biostat kaplan videos? If it's understanding or "making sense of it" part, I think the lecturer there does a good job of explaining the basics. He gives a good perspective of biostat -- it's a good start.
