The 2015 Recommended References Survey

Your Professional Library

Becoming an ASQ CRE is one milestone in your career. It involved gathering experience and studying the broad reliability engineering body of knowledge.

It also involved ongoing application of what you know and learn. I’ve found being a reliability engineer involves learning about materials, designs, systems, people, and the tools & techniques. Mastery takes time and a good library.

Your Reference Recommendations

Whether you’re preparing for the exam or interesting in helping others prepare, which references do you recommend someone use to prepare and pass the exam?

Accendo_Courses_127x127On the Accendo Reliability site we’ve built a listing of books (many of which are on my bookshelf) and the ASQ CRE Recommended Reading list in particular. The list today is just what I typically recommend, yet I know there is a lot of experience out there.

So share what you know. The survey takes about 2 minutes and asks you about the current recommended list, what you would add or remove. That’s it.

Start the Survey


I’ll collect the results over the month and post the results, and update the recommended references in early January.

If you are preparing for the exam, here’s an article just on that topic.
