Design and Analysis of Experiments
The eighth edition of Design and Analysis of Experiments continues to provide extensive and indepth information on engineering, business, and statisticsas well as informative ways to help readers design and analyze experiments for improving the quality, efficiency and performance of working systems. Furthermore, the text maintains its comprehensive coverage by including: new examples, exercises, and problems (including in the areas of biochemistry and biotechnology); new topics and problems in the area of response surface; new topics in nested and splitplot design; and the residual maximum likelihood method is now emphasized throughout the book.

Good text… but take the course,
Summary:
Clearly written
Plenty of examples, though purchase the solutions guide if you’ve been assigned the homework
Lots of theory
Lots of real world examples
Don’t expect to learn an analysis software package
NOTE: If you want the basics of DOE and statistical analysis applied in a practical manner, I would highly recommend the freely available NIST/SEMATECH eHandbook of Statistical Methods, http://www.itl.nist.gov/div898/handbook/

Dr. Montgomery’s book,
The mathematics is not really hard … only basic arithmetic and some basic linear algebra is all you need. Integrals/differentials and PDE’s are mentioned in the second chapter to describe some functions but that’s about it. However, it is important to understand the concepts early and sequentially as the topics build upon each other. For my case, one chapter takes about six hours total to read. The exercises are reasonable and emphasize the important concepts. It took me about 30 min to answer a reasonably challenging question. I would suggest buying the solutions manual to reduce your heartache or erase any doubts although be aware that not all exercises have a solutions in the manual.

Class requirement,
The textbook states a lot of formulas in a way that it expects you to know how to solve them.
However, it is very useful in that it comes with an online subscription and excel content that can be downloaded online.
Overall challenging book, but you will learn from it!
