Here is a review on the book by our beloved and kind professor, Edward McNeil

"This guide by Myo Minn Oo is a welcome companion for those who plan to use the EpiData Manager and EntryClient software, successors to the widely popular Epidata Entry software, developed by The EpiData Association, Odense, Denmark. While a comprehensive user's guide for the Epidata Entry software has been available online for many years, as yet there is no such guide for the more recent EpiData Manager and Epidata EntryClient software. This beginner's guide, therefore, fills this gap.

As the title suggests, the guide is intended for beginners of the EpiData Manager and EntryClient software. There are 13 well-written chapters covering installation, creating new projects and codebooks, double-entry validation, as well as more advanced topics. The author gives very clear explanations of how to design a data entry form, define field types, and create derived fields. The final chapter explains how to encrypt data files for project security.

In summary, this beginner's guide is a valuable tool for anyone planning to use the EpiData Manager and EntryClient software in their work."
