Review of the most common types of questions commonly seen on STEP 1. Review the teaching videos from Dallas for more in depth explanation. These are the minimum basics, there is more material that is fair game for the test, but you can "hold your own" with this material

13:40 would A and B also be 100% sensitivity?

JewelsOfOctober (5 дней назад)

For question at 23:48, I think the answer may be incorrect as mentioned by someone else earlier. Please someone correct me if I'm wrong.
If you label the table as in FA, with prostate cancer (disease-D) on top and having children (risk factor-RF) on the left, the way I remember it to always label it correctly within the table is:
A= positive D, positive RF (++);
B=negative D, positive RF(-- +)
C=positive D, negative RF(+ --)
D=negative D, negative RF(-- --)
So in this table A=220, B=1280, C=80, D=920
RR= A/A+B//C/C+D=220/1500//80/1000=1.36; I think the answer should be 1.36. Let me know what you think...
Otherwise many thanks to Dr Neil for this wonderful video, I've learned so much from it, everything is explained so well, thank you !!

Dr. Neil's biostatistics review videos are an absolute must-watch for Step 1 studying! These lectures will give you an approach that you can consistently use to answer questions correctly. Forever grateful!

Arbaaz Rao (2 месяца назад)

I went and did a block of UWorld focusing on Biostats right after watching this video and its subsequent video (Part 2). It was SUPER reflective of all the questions he just did, I applied the same techniques taught by Dr. Neil and was rocking those questions.
Watching the two videos, that are about an hour long, completely overpowered the endless hours I've spent studying Biostats from Kaplan as well as First Aid.
Oh and by the way, he replied to my email right away and sent his notes. Wish I could give these videos a million thumbs up.

Great Just have one small comment, 14.33 min question should be E no change as when the curves are moved down both TP and TN also went down proportionately so the total effect cancels out. Making the answer E

Nadia Khan (3 месяца назад)

Randy can you explain if only sensitivity, specificity and prevalence is given. And they want you to get TP to FP ratio. How do you get this?? If no population size was given how can we tackle this?

Dr. Neil is the MAN! Thank you for taking this extremely dry topic and making it easy. I've studied it for step 1 and step 2 and could not bear to do it again for step 3 but his approach has brought much needed relief. Also very impressed with his response to my request for a copy of the notes as he is no doubt busy with residency. Thanks again, doc!

greatest video i have ever seen

Dan Iducovich (8 месяцев назад)

Isn't it more typical to "control" for "age" through "matching" rather than see it as a "disease" or even an "exposure"? But if age is often an "exposure" or a "condition" for USMLE purpose... I woudn't doubt that the exam, itself, would be purposively confusing in this way, and at "cross-purposes" to a sensible study design.... But, I was a philosophy major in undergrad, not "premedical", so I understand statistics a little differently than what a new generation sees in statistics... I don't know... (which FYI, is not a reference to Epistimology) https://onlinecourses.science.psu.edu/stat507/node/48

Quick question! When you talked about correlation you said that a lower correlation would mean a change in slope? What idd you mean by that? Should we be looking at slope or how well the line fits the data points?

Enanyeli Rangel (10 месяцев назад)

But greater would have been more than 240... I don't understand why ends up been 5.... I'm Still confuse with the GREATER?????

Enanyeli Rangel (8 месяцев назад)

Thank you so much for the taking the time to answer... it was indeed helpfull @Muaad Atef

Muaad Atef (9 месяцев назад)

Yes, all the values above 240 would make only 5% of the sample given . since the mean is 210 , and the standard deviation was 15 , therefore one standard deviation above the mean would be 210+15= 225 and two standards deviations above the mean would be 240 , now heres the concept : if you take the mean of the sample and added 2 standard deviation you get 95% of the sample , the remaining would be 5% . the question is asking how many people would be higher than 240 ( in other words higher than 2 standard deviations ) since we know that anything above 240 would be more than 2 standard deviations , this means we want the 5% which isn't included in the ( cause it's above 240) , so 5% of 200 people would equal 10 . now last thing to know is that those 10 include ALL the 5% of the sample ( above and below the mean ) , but we only want the ones above the mean so we divide by half and the answer is 5 . hope it helps .

the problem about relative risk about the guys who have children over those that don't...I'm confused. You are saying you are using R.R formula but changing the way its used bc the problem states to compare those that don't have vs those that have. You proceed to plug in the #'s but, and this is where i get confused, instead of using the formula: (A/A+B) / (C/C+D) it goes more like a fused odd ratio RR formula: (B/B+D) / (A/A+C). Wouldn't it be: B/B+A / D/D+C ?

Randy Neil, MD (10 месяцев назад)

The "key" to these problems and mastering this concept is to understand that you don't want to memorize the formula...because if they (USMLE) change the question you will get it wrong. It is best to put "whatever they say first" on top and "whatever they say last" on bottom... This will work everytime and keep you away from the trap. Hard to say over words... Trust me...it will work every time ... Once you have the "A'ha" moment you can come back here and explain it...to others.

Errata: 13:06, the question's answer is A, B, or C for 100% sensitivity, since False Positives dont matter in Sensitivitiy

Randy Neil, MD (10 месяцев назад)

Good to hear the feedback

Jere Mias (10 месяцев назад)

Ok I am still confused. At 23:48, Relative Risk in first aid is (A/A+B) / (C/C+D). I understand it is NO CHILDREN but he is doing (B/B+D) / (A/A+C)? Or am I missing something here. Does prostate cancer go on top if you want to use first aids method?

JewelsOfOctober (5 дней назад)

Yes I think this answer may be incorrect. If you label the table as in FA, with prostate cancer (disease-D) on top and having children (risk factor-RF) on the left, the way I remember it to always label it correctly within the table is:
A= positive D, positive RF (++);
B=negative D, positive RF(-- +)
C=positive D, negative RF(+ --)
D=negative D, negative RF(-- --)
So in this table A=220, B=1280, C=80, D=920
RR= A/A+B//C/C+D=220/1500//80/1000=1.36; I think the answer should be 1.36. Please someone correct me if I'm wrong.
Otherwise many thanks to Dr Neil for this wonderful video, I've learned so much from it, everything is explained so well !!
