- Introduction to Biostatistics
Introduction to Biostatistics is the name of the course that is offered by Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. The students will learn about the concepts and reasoning strategies in biostatistics. Feel free to download the lectures in PDF or MP3 files. These materials cover several things, including the differences in means, sampling variability, hypothesis testing, and theoretical distributions. Aside from the online version, this course was also available in based class. While the course that is based in class took four weeks to complete, the time to complete this online version is not limited. The students are able to complete everything every time they have a free time. If the course is not enough, they might also want to try the practice problems that are in the course site along with the solutions.
