Hai, I intend taking up the CSQA exam at the earliest. I also came to know that the reference material supplied by ASQ costa about 100$. Can anyone throw more light on this, Is this material really useful?
The ASQ is not the company that sponsors the CSQA. It's the Software Certifications company by QAI.
Have you passed the CSTE exam yet? It's recommended that this one be the first one you take.
As to the $100 charge for the study guide. I've just purchased the CSQA book myself and plan to use it heavily. I passed the CSTE exam last spring and found the exam is almost totally from the study guide for that program.
However, neither the CSTE or CSQA exams can be passed with JUST the study guide. You'll need to have had experience in the QA industry in order to pass the exam. There are 20 essay questions that ask for judgement decisions regarding the QA profession and related duties.
