    CSQE Training Info

    I currently subscribe to Quality Digest (free! www.qualitydigest.com ). It's an all around quality magazine, not focused on software. I saw an ad from the Quality Council of Indiana ( www.qualitycouncil.com ) for study materials for various certifications including the CSQE (page 17 of the Feb 2002 issue).

    Has anyone looked at this organization or used any of their training materials. Adding it up $170 gets you a Primer (body of knowledge ?'s and A's), a Solution Text, and a CD of an additional 600 questions.

    Seemed to be worth further investigation... Anyone got any info?

    Re: CSQE Training Info


    I bought it a couple of years ago.
    This is the ASQ point of view on the quality.
    Has no any practical value from my point of view.
    The Necessary matireal if you would like to take any of the ASQ certifications.

    Re: CSQE Training Info

    I actually thought this was useful, and it was included in an ASQ study course that I attended. Although, the only piece we received was the Primer binder.

    There were 2 primary benefits...
    1. The study guide questions and answers. Hard to come-up with these on your own. There were some questions thrown in that were not covered in the Primer, so you had to do a little research to get the answer (assuming you don't get the solution text).

    2. The body of knowledge (albeit from one guide's perspective) is right there. This was very valuable during the exam. This was my first reference point. Much easier to look through a binder, as opposed to sifting through book after book after book.

    Re: CSQE Training Info

    Hello, I am a CSQE from ASQ.

    As far as the value of getting certified is concerned, I somewhat experience it.

    As far as the study materials are concerned, I used the following:

    1. CSQE Primer
    2. CSQE CD-ROM (1000 questions) which includes solution for the book questions too. If you bought this, you do not need the solution text.
    3. Watts Humphrey - "Managing the software process".
    4. Pressman - "Software Engineering"
    5. SEI's CMM guidelines book - can't remember the name.
    6. Any other materials that one could get - magazines and articles eg. Crosstalk etc.

    1,2,3,4 are a must, in my view.

    Open-book - I would say is of little use as most questions were logical.

    There are refresher courses available - contact your local ASQ chapter.

    The next exam should be in June, I guess.

    Good luck.


    GG
