During the past decade there has been an explosion in computation and information technology. With it have come vast amounts of data in a variety of fields such as medicine, biology, finance, and marketing. The challenge of understanding these data has led to the development of new tools in the field of statistics, and spawned new areas such as data mining, machine learning, and bioinformatics. Many of these tools have common underpinnings but are often expressed with different terminology. This book describes the important ideas in these areas in a common conceptual framework. While the approach is statistical, the emphasis is on concepts rather than mathematics. Many examples are given, with a liberal use of color graphics. It should be a valuable resource for statisticians and anyone interested in data mining in science or industry. The book’s coverage is broad, from supervised learning (prediction) to unsupervised learning. The many topics include neural networks, support vector machines, classification trees and boosting---the first comprehensive treatment of this topic in any book. This major new edition features many topics not covered in the original, including graphical models, random forests, ensemble methods, least angle regression & path algorithms for the lasso, non-negative matrix factorization, and spectral clustering. There is also a chapter on methods for “wide” data (p bigger than n), including multiple testing and false discovery rates. Trevor Hastie, Robert Tibshirani, and Jerome Friedman are professors of statistics at Stanford University. They are prominent researchers in this area: Hastie and Tibshirani developed generalized additive models and wrote a popular book of that title. Hastie co-developed much of the statistical modeling software and environment in R/S-PLUS and invented principal curves and surfaces. Tibshirani proposed the lasso and is co-author of the very successful An Introduction to the Bootstrap. Friedman is the co-inventor of many data-mining tools including CART, MARS, projection pursuit and gradient boosting.

I remember what it was like to study for the NAPLEX. Overwhelming doesn't begin to describe the feeling. Where do you start? How do you prioritize and review for this gigantic exam? When I am preparing to take pharmacy exams, I have a very difficult time learning and retaining information from massive review books. I find myself reading for 5-10 minutes and my mind begins to wander, retaining nothing of what I just read. After years of practice and test taking (NAPLEX, BCPS, CGP etc.), I have found that I learn most efficiently by memorizing information in short important bullet points. In this study guide, I have selected the most commonly used medication classes and have provided you with my most highly testable pearls on each class. In this book, I cover over 150 medication classes which includes nearly 400 medications! I have created bullet points which will help you review more efficiently and not waste your limited study time. This resource is not intended to be a package insert for every medication, but rather a way to try to prioritize your study process and understand the major "nuggets" of information that you must know to help you pass the NAPLEX. The intent is to give you a brief, incredibly helpful review of the most important medications you will likely be tested on the NAPLEX exam. I truly hope this book helps you pass the NAPLEX the first time! NAPLEX is a registered trademark of NABP. Meded101 and this study guide are not affiliated or endorsed by NABP or the NAPLEX Exam.
