I bought this book for a graduate level Design of Experiments class. It was not on the course list, but I figured the book might give me a leg up in the class. (We used Montgomery's DOE textbook to which this is a companion.)

My recommendation would be to skip the book and invest an hour or two just playing with Minitab. It is a fairly simple program to use, and every single command window has a "help" button - and for the most part, the help is indeed useful, providing a thorough explanation, including not only a "how to" as well as the underlying theory or formula. If you screw up, Minitab's error windows will usually guide you in the right direction.

Over the course of the semester, I only referenced the book a couple of times, and in all the cases, I found a better answer either through Montgomery's textbook, poking around Minitab, or using Google.

If you are uncomfortable diving into a new piece of software, or you like having things explicitly spelled out for you, there might be some justification. But for the majority of cases, Montgomery's DOE book will probably suffice.

Disappointed! I'm in a Blackbelt class. My instructor favors Excel, but we have Minitab at work. My goal in purchasing this book was to determine how to use Minitab. One of the difficulties in using Minitab is how to configure the data. I had hoped to see how the author configures the data within the Minitab worksheet. Unfortunately the URL in the book, where the sample data is supposed to be stored, errors out and the Wiley site has the wrong data. Wiley refuses to fix the problem--I would think the author would enthusiastically cooperate, but I doubt they have taken the time to call him. I will check the Wiley site from time to time to see when and if the data is corrected. Until the data is fixed, this book is worthless for my purposes. Wiley trouble ticket number 100908-000196.

This is little more than an answer key companion to the book - something that should be given in the textbook itself, but is an excuse to make you pay more money. If you can possibly get away without buying it do so as all you will get is just the final answer (no explanation of how to reach it) and a bunch of minitab output (that in most cases you could get yourself by just downloading the free minitab software). Pointless companion to a badly written book.

I did not realize the softcover is not the actual text book but the minitab manual (I did not know what this was till the course started) The hardcover book (textbook) is a bit confusing but we used it as a textbook and after the prof explained, it was ok. Dont think I could've read and understood. Minitab isnt my choice of stat software, hence cannot comment about it.
