The principles of a specific statistical test with its assumption were well listed. It can be viewed as a quick reference guide in using a particular statistical s:   Written in an easily accessible style, the Oxford Handbook of Medical Statistics provides doctors and medical students with a concise and thorough account of this often difficult subject.
