Thanks, Bernard!! The link was really helpfulThe vertical axis of an epidemic curve should measure incidence. As a note to anyone who may have the terms mixed, incidence is the number of new cases in a period of time, while prevalence is the total number of cases during a period or at a point in time. Read more about the difference here.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also has a quick guide on how to make epidemic curves.
A few hundred common ones.About the "Solve the Outbreak" app... it is awesome!
What diseases are probably the most important to study this year?
Thanks, 6nusher!Normally, at least in New York, the test doesn't particularly focus on one specific disease. So you can't just study ebola and be fine on the test this year. The rules (in the rule manual) say that the test will favor knowledge that is broad and vague over detailed and specific, so just know some stuff about the different types of diseases (bacteria, viruses, etc.). There is absolutely no way you will be able to memorize anything useful about the diseases they use, and anyway, they should provide any specific information about the diseases they're testing. What remains is how you use the information they give you.
