    Can people recommend or suggest some good reference texts for epidemiology. I'm currently taking an introductory course but the professor didn't assign a textbook.

    Thanks

    Epidemiologic Methods: Studying the Occurrence of Disease by Koepsell and Weiss is supposed to be a good one. I am going to UW next year and they use that (the professors teach there).

    I like Gordis, too, for its brevity and readability.
