Default Best Biostatistics Book for USMLE

Post and Poll Options were last updated on August 29th, 2013.

In this poll we vote for the Best Epidemiology and Biostatistics book specific for the USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 CK and Step 3 Exams.

Choice of Books Listed in the Poll
You will notice that larger textbooks of biostats and epidemiology are not listed here, we are voting for those books that are specifically useful in the USMLE prep.
The books listed above are useful for Med school students during their med school years as well as graduates who are preparing for the step 1 exam.

Books that have only questions with no review content are not listed. Similarly Flashcards are not listed.
Books that are outdated (8 years or older) and that do not have updated editions also get removed from the poll, their votes are also deleted in the process.
If we have missed a biostatistics/epidemiology Review book, please post about it in the mainstream Step 1 Forum and we'll add it to this poll.

No Replies!
You will also notice that we move away or delete replies to this thread. This is because we want the focus on the poll above rather than discussion and comments. You can always check our Biostatistics-Epidemiology Tag for discussions about biostatistics and epidemiology prep and books for the step 1 exam.

Who should vote?
Please do not vote if you haven't used any of the books above. Artificial inflation of votes by book authors publishers will be detected and removed. Votes that are older than 18 months are automatically deleted.

Why books are linked in the poll options?
Book links are periodically updated to the latest editions and will take you to Amazon pages where you can purchase those books. Books that are not available in Amazon cannot be listed.

To find out about other Best Books for USMLE Review, please check our Best Books Page. In that page you will also find list of latest editions.

Note) You will notice that many USMLE review books combine together the topics of Behavioral Sciences, US Healthcare, Medical Ethics, Biostatistics and Epidemiology in one review book, usually labeled behavioral science. Therefore, several books are repeated in our Best Behavioral, Best Medical Ethics, and this poll of best biostatistics book. But we want you to vote in this poll for only the biostatistics portion of these books.

Happy voting!
