What do you mean by biostatistics? To someone like me that covers alot of things including machine learning to pearson correlation coefficient. For basic stats avoid the net and get yourself a math book from the local library read it and focus on areas as an when you need to.

Check out math world (google)
science world (linked to math world again google)
Mastering Algorithms in Perl (book including lots of fun stuff)
wikipedia

Though I'm not sure what you're exactly looking for - the above link covers logarithms, Bayesian theory, odds-ratio, weighted comparisons of means, etc.

Hope this helps

Biostatistics is just statistics, except that the numbers you're applying statistical tests to are derived from a biological source...
