The best USMLE Biostatistics resource I've found so far
By joshua W. on 17. July 2018 for Learn Statistics - Become Data Smart

So for a reference, I´m an MS2 preparing for step 1, and the biostatistics at my school is not very good. I´ve used Jeckel´s, UWORLD statistics questions, and First Aid. A lot of students write off statistics as a low yield subject, but I think (from what others have told me) is to score high you need to be fairly strong in all areas, and plus you want to make a solid doctor and learn the material regardless. Out of the resources I´ve used (correct me if there are better out there) that this is by far a cut above the other resources for the USMLE. He explains the concepts in a clear and easy way to understand, and more than equips you with the tools you need to go out there and ace the UWORLD, Kaplan, etc. questions. The Lecturio lecturers range from not to good to amazing, and I would highly recommend to watch this series through for any medical student, health sciences or premedical student taking a biostatistics class, or for anyone who wants to understand medical statistics a little better.

This lecture is the best.
