The following books have been added to the bibliography.

**Atkinson**, A.C. ** Plots, Transformations and Regression**. Oxford Science Publications, reprinted 1988.

ISBN 0 19 853359 4.

[regression; 13 Aug 2012]

This is devoted to detecting outliers (i.e. using single deletion statistics) and to transformations of the variables. It looks like an excellent supplement to Draper and Smith. Text. Epilog.

**Mendenhall**, William and **Scheaffer**, Richard L. ** Mathematical Statistics with Applications**. Duxbury Press, 1973.

ISBN 0 87872 047 2.

[statistics; 13 Aug 2012]

While I know there is a 7th edition, I can only hope that it is as clear and useful as my first edition was. Text. Answers.

**McQuarrie**, Allan D. R. and **Tsai**, Chih-Ling,** Regression and Time Series Model Selection**. World Scientific Press, 1978.

ISBN 981 02 3242 X.

[statistics, regression, time series; 13 Aug 2012]

This book has a whole lot more information than what I extracted for my selection criteria; and it covers tests for more than just OLS regression (e.g. robust regression, wavelets, and time series). Monograph. Epilog.

**Ryan**, Thomas P. ** Modern Regression Methods**. Wiley Interscience, 1997.

ISBN 0 471 52912 5.

[regression; 13 Aug 2012]

A fine second look at regression. I find it a little too terse for learning new things from, but it provides additional insight for things I already understand. Text. Answers.

**Wine**, R. Lowell ** Statistics for Scientists and Engineers**. Prentice Hall, 1964.

[statistics; 13 Aug 2012]

This is my reference – although it was, in fact, the text for my very first statistics course. It is thorough and precise… and, I hate to say, I’m not surprised that such a rigorous book is out of print. Text.
