    Does anybody have videos on calculation of the p value and the hypotheses. Because I don't get how they're explained in Kaplan. So if anybody has a link on YouTube or can suggest a better resource for the statistical hypotheses I would be thankful if you shared them with me.

    you absolutely don't need to know how to calculate p value. you just need to know what it means (the concept) and that <0.05 is significant. and that it's related to type 1 error. i cannot imagine anything else being asked about it.

    The videos seem to be very good but I can't afford to buy a whole series for a couple of biostats videos. Unfortunately. :(

    Kaplan step 2 CK Psychiatry had a lecture on Biostats which I found veryy useful. I thought that was enough for Step 1 biostats. It was about 2 hours long I think and the guy was pretty fun to listen to - made biostats really easy!
