The Quality Council of Indiana produces a broad array of primers for those preparing for one of the ASQ certification exams.
The Certified Reliability Engineer Primer – published in 2018 – is a three-ring binder covering the entire body of knowledge in detail along with sample questions & answers.
It is an excellent book for those refreshing skills for the exam, or just as a everyday desk reference. With plenty of worked out problems, along with sample exam questions, this reference is highly recommended.
You will also find a solution booklet and sample exam CD.
You may be able to find a copy for sale online. Be sure to check the edition, as the current 5th edition is tailored to the current ASQ CRE body of knowledge.
You may also find someone willing to sell or loan you a copy by posting your request on the CRE Preparation Linkedin Group.
