  • What if you have not completed a "formal" Six Sigma project?

    If you have not done a formal project but were involved in improvement activities which has used some of the Six Sigma tools, then you can try to submit that for ASQ certification. If that improvement has saved money and used some of the tools there is a chance that ASQ might accept that improvement activity as a project.

    In a worst case scenario, ASQ will reject your application and will refund you the fee after deducting $50 from the fee. 

    Do I need CSSGB before applying for the CSSBB?


    There is no such requirement. Even if you do not possess CSSGB certification, you can still apply for the CSSBB certification.

    Easy to Understand

    "The course is quite comprehensive, easy to understand and I would recommend for anyone who needs a clear understanding of six sigma concepts at black belt level."

    2: Books

    Most of the students have used one or both of these for the CSSBB exam (as a minimum)

    a) Quality Council of Indiana Primer (You might want to buy the questions CD as well)

    b) ASQ CSSBB Handbook

    You will need the hard copy, as the CSSBB exam is an open book exam. You can take this is the exam. ASQ does allow books in the exam but does not allow the questions. So, you will have to remove practice question pages from the binder.

    3. Calculator

    ASQ does not allow programmable calculator in the exam. It does suggest a list of calculators allowed in the exam. Most commonly used calculator is TI-30Xa. This is a simple calculator and has statistical functions.

    However, we suggest Casio fx-991MS for the exam. This is a scientific calculator.

    Casio fx-991MS can perform many advanced functions quickly, without needing to actually use complex formulas and tables. Some of these advanced functions include:

    - Finding out the mean and standard deviation of a group of numbers

    - Solving the Simple Linear Regression questions (You will not believe how easy it is if you have not used a scientific calculator like fx-991MS)

    - Normal Distribution questions (You will not need to open the Z-table to solve them)

    - Solving equations with one, two or three unknowns

    - Using calculator memory for complex calculations

    Get used to the calculator that you will use in the exam. We have a course on how to efficiently use Casio fx-991MS calculator. Click here for a special discount.
