    Hello.  I have seen a lot of statistical books but I have not yet found a book that covers from Basic Statistics to Hypothesis Testing to Correlation and Regression to Statistical Process Control (quality) to Design of Experiments.
    Is there such a book?  if there is, can you recommend something that is easy to comprehend?  If not, can you suggest something?  Thanks.  ‘Hope to hear some replies…

      What you are asking for is roughly the first two years of a 4 year undergraduate course in statistics.  There are books that will zip through the list you have posted but I doubt that they will be of much value to you.  I can’t offer a single text but I would offer the following:
    Basic statistics and hypothesis testing:
    A Cartoon Guide to Statistics – by way of introduction
    Statistical Theory and Methodology in Science and Engineering-Brownlee
    Chapter 1 Mathematical Ideas, Chapter 2-Statistical Ideas – has great graphical depiction of the concept of critical areas,  Chapter 6- Control Charts, Chapters 8-10 and 14.
    Applied Regression Analysis -2nd Edition – Draper and Smith Chapters 1-4, with particular emphasis on Chapter 3 -The Examination of Residuals, Chapter 8 -Multiple Regression, and Chapter 9 – Multiple Regression Applied to ANOVA
    Statistics for Experimenters Box, Hunter, Hunter – the entire book.
    for backup have a copy of
    Quality Control – Duncan
    Regression Analysis by Example – Chatterjee and Price
    Statistical Methods – Snedecor and Cochran

    Douglas Montgomery’s “Introduction to Statistical Quality Control” is an excellent book that matches your description. 
    Part I – Intro to Quality Improvement and Basic StatisticsPart II – SPC & Process CapabilityPart III – Advanced Quality Control MethodsPart IV – Process Design & Improvement with DOEPart V – Acceptance Sampling
    Check out the contents in Amazon. Search the Books on “Douglas Montgomery” and you’ll find it.

    Thank you very much for the immediate reply.  Though I already have statistical methods by cochran and snedecor, and I think this one covers basic statistics to doe.  I think I have to take a look at your quality book by duran to complete the set.  thanks once again.

    I like Montgomery’s introductory book and I also appreciate Thomas Pyzdek’s Quality Engineering Handbook and his new Six Sigma Handbook.
    Pyzdek has some other books on statistics that are listed on the web that you might consider. If you discover the one book that fits all of your needs please share your find.
    Pyzdek has articles in quality magazines (Quality Digest – I think) that you can read to see if his style is compatable with your preferences.

    Rullean,
    If you find it all in one book you will probably have to sacrifice some insight that you get from reading various authors.
    You get great DOE from Box, Hunter and Hunter. If you read Robert Launsby’s book “Straight Talk on Designing Experiments” he doesn’t give the depth of detail in BH&H (he does explain how they work) but he does a great job of taking the spectrum of types of DOE’s and fitting them together and presenting the pro’s and con’s and tradeoffs
    If you want control charts you need to read Wheeler. There are just a huge amount of benifits from the diversity of reading different authors. The closest to getting that in a single book is Jurans “Handbook.”
    There is a long list of good authors. Several of the posts have provided some good references. Where you get your value isn’t from how you crunch the numbers. It comes from the things they explain about the numbers and what they mean.
    Good luck

    Hi Rullean,
    We have a book called “Basic Statistics, Tools for continuous improvement” by Mark J. Kiemele, Stephen R. Schmidt and Ronald J. Berdine. It covers the things you mentioned (and more) and is’t writen in a very open way. There’s lots of examples, equasions and tables/pictures to make is easy to read.
    ISBN number is 1-880156-06-7
    Hope this helps!

    Thank you very much everyone for all your insights.  Definitely I would be looking at each one at amazon for their overview and table of contents.  So far, I already have Statistical Methods by Cochran, a local book called Applied Statistics for Business, and Introduction to SPC, which is still coming.  Thanks once again…

    Rullean,
    There is a good book I am referencing as a Black Belt called “The Six Sigma Handbook” written by Thomas Pyzdek.  It is aimed at being a guide for GB’s, BB’s and Management.
    It covers topics such as leadership, training, Six Sigma principles, organisation performance, metrics, management of projects, measurements and data, basic methods, intermediate methods, advanced methods.
    As to your specific list, the book covers each of these items.
    The ISBN number is 0-07-137233-4 and was published by McGraw-Hill.
    Good Luck.

    I also have this book. It has a lot of good inormation in well organized format. Many of the statistics topics are covered in short chapters with useful examples.
