Use the Stats Book You Know Well
The important recommendation here is to use a textbook that you are familiar with already. If you haven’t sold your college text, or have one you use regularly at work, that will be fine.
The text should include the basics of probability and statistics, hypothesis tests, confidence intervals, control charts, sample size determination, and introductions to ANOVA and DOE, as a minimum. Check which reference you reach for when facing statistics questions while doing the practice exam questions.
I (Fred) took an extensive data analysis course in pursuit of my Master of Science degree in statistics. It’s a good all-around stats reference, so if you don’t have one, I recommend it.
