“Many thanks for writing such an excellent book and for running an excellent online course. Both the book and the course makes it easy to understand statistics. I know at least six SpRs who read your book and passed the critical appraisal FCEM exam (which is one of the parts of exit exam in Emergency Medicine). This exam is quite tough and your book and the course help in understanding of the terms which makes it easy to write the applied answers.” - Rajnish Mittal, Emergency Medicine

“I thoroughly enjoyed the course and felt that I had finally been taught it by someone who actually understood critical appraisal. I usually leave tutorials on critical appraisal more confused than I started. I have already recommended your course to friends and colleagues both in the UK and Ireland.” - Niamh Collins, Emergency Medicine
