Introduction to Biostatistics with JMP

Introduction to Biostatistics with JMP® 

By Steve Figard
Anticipated publication date:  Fourth quarter 2019

The topics will introduce them to how to think like a biostatistician with real life problems to make it relevant. This includes how to determine what tests are the most appropriate to answer the question being studied. Many of the methods are common to other disciplines, such as comparing treatment groups with t tests and ANOVA, but some topics will cover material that finds greater use in the biological sciences. These will include topics such as odds ratios and relative risk, and survival analysis. This basic knowledge of biostatistics will help the readers to both understand and evaluate what they read in the biological and medical literature as well as enable them to correctly generate and interpret such statistics from their own data. 

The Little SAS® Book: A Primer, Sixth Edition

By Lora Delwiche and Susan Slaughter
Anticipated publication date:  Fourth quarter 2019

Almost every section in the best-seller, The Little SAS Book, will be updated to ensure that this book continues to be the book that readers turn to when learning how to program in SAS. The sixth edition will be interface independent so it won’t matter if you are using SAS Studio, SAS Enterprise Guide, or the SAS windowing environment as your programming interface. In this edition, the authors have included many more examples of creating and using permanent SAS data sets, as well as using PROC IMPORT to read data. The new edition also deemphasizes reading raw data files using the INPUT statement—a topic that is no longer covered in the new base SAS programmer certification exam. The Little SAS® Book: A Primer, Sixth Edition is a must for learning how to program using SAS!
