First the obvious: What are you trying to titrate? Second obvious question: You do know you are asking a subjective question?
Many people have their preferred references. Some use only specific methods from one reference and utilize another reference for additional information. Personally, most of the sources I use are little known books which are mostly out of print, some from overseas publishers.
I think what you need to do is to develop a basic "library shelf". One reference, which includes many traditional analytic methods for plating and related solutions is the Metal Finishing Guide Book (published yearly by Metal Finishing Magazine). Another is the current or any old edition of Electroplating Engineering Handbook by Durney et. al. (additional authors depending on edition). There are many others. Since I am presuming that you work in a plating facility (captive or job shop) you should ask your vendors for procedures. You might also ask those other sales people who call on your firm for their procedures for their competitive materials and see if the methods of different. Collect information then decide which is best for you.
Some companies do have proprietary methods/reagents which are believed to be easier to use. However, the basic chemistry for these generally comes back to one of the generic methods.
