after hours of searching, i still cannot find a good website on different kinds of infectious agent/disease causing agents, such as different vectors. Any suggestions?
i couldn't find any good websites either so i just used the dictionary also i got my mom to go to the upenn library to get epidemiology books

does anyone know how the tests are going to relate human population to this event?

We know what info that you need to know, but we don't know if they hand us a paper and we hav to write down info or if they give us a scenario and we have to figure it out. Can someone who has been to this event and done it tell us what u did?

I haven't done it before so I'm not sure but I think it's a written test with some small scenarios and some info you need to know...

A lot of people have trouble calculating odds ratio and relative risk.
