Review:

 "This is a most impressive disc. One quickly brings up a first page screen and each click on a "right arrow" turns the page (with an appropriate sound effect!). Index, glossary, marks (bookmarks) and content tabs can be opened and maintained at the same time. Icons in the text can be clicked upon to bring up quizzes and miniature "movies" describing calculation procedures. One can quickly move to any point in the text. A "complete software program called Data Desk" is provided for student calculations."
ISI Short Book Reviews, Vol. 23/1, 2003

"This is a very pleasant way to study and learn the basics of epidemiological research and the fundamental concepts of statistical analysis. Kleinbaum has produced the first multimedia text teaching epidemiology. It is full of state-of-the-art pedagogical procedures seamlessly integrated into a multimedia format that covers the material commonly found in an introductory epidemiology course...The videos vividly illustrate the practical applications of epidemiological research. More outstanding are the carefully narrated and illustrated visual clips that coordinate visual and auditory learning styles ... ActivEpi is likely to become the preferred approach for learning epidemiology..." -Wordtrade.com

"The principal benefit of the multimedia format is the active learning with lots of activities for better understanding and retention. Each lesson has animated expositions with real life examples, narrated instructional expositions, interactive study questions and short quizzes, homework exercises, practices with real data using Data Desk, and links to ActivEpi's website and other interesting related sites...it can be used in pieces rather than whole lessons. I recommend widely ActivEpi for students and professionals who are beginning to learn epidemology, and to those that have a more advanced level of knowledge." --Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, 2004;58;434

"ActivEpi provides a very valuable introduction into basic epidemiological concepts. The program features many helpful details (e.g., a glossary, bookmarks) and practical examples...ActivEpi can be warmly recommended as an introductory epidemiological course or even for refreshing of details for more experienced scientists." --Biometrics, June 2004

"ActivEpi addresses every issue through a practical example. In addition, the CD media enables this aspect to be exploited to the full so that not only are a large number of different relevant and topical examples used but also the use of pictures and cartoons adds to the interest. " --Journal of the Royal Statistical Society Series A, Volume 167 Issue 3 Page 571 - August 2004

"This course achieves its aim of providing a good introduction to epidemiology. Topics are covered well and there are excellent features such as the quizzes and the glossary...I think it would appeal to all students of epidemiology and would be a well-used resource for university libraries or departments. It would also be useful for people who are unable to attend a university course in epidemiology." Paediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology, 2004, 18
