1.0 out of 5 stars not good as many think
Although this was considerd a good book when it was initialy published, I see no reason to dwell on that.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent summary of Medical statistical methodology., 29 Nov 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Critical Appraisal for Psychiatrists, 1e (MRCPsy Study Guides) (Paperback)
This excellent book should be compulsory reading for all mental health professionals. The book takes the reader through the principles of research methods, statistics and critical appraisal with many worked examples in a clear and methodical way. Several important papers from the mental health field have been used that will illustrate the obvious value of EBM to the clinician in the field. The exam questions are set out in a similar way to the MRCPsych Part II critical review paper meaning that this is currently the only comprehensive text for exam candidates.

This review is from: Critical Appraisal for Psychiatrists, 1e (MRCPsy Study Guides) (Paperback)
Although this was considerd a good book when it was initialy published, I see no reason to dwell on that. There are far more better critical appraisal books in market now, with cristal clear diagramatic representations of factual information. Learing critical appraisal needs clear understanding of the diffrent methods and able to dissect the facts. I found it very hard to achieve this with this book, if one is newly learning critical appraisal. How ever MCQ section I need to say is good though. Authors may have to review the book and do a new edition to appeal to every trainee.
