Can you specify which certification is better CSTE or CSQE knowing that one is offered by QAI and the other by ASQ. I have a BSEE and have been doing QA for the last couple of years, so should that influence my decision making ? also, any EE's out there doing quality assurance work or software testing ?
I can definitely tell you that 1 month is not enough unless you have taken the test before or somehow familiar with those questions before hand. Any exam can be passed in a 1 month basis is not worth taking.
I have been a CSTE, CSQA for a few years and just passed the CSQE. I usually plan about 6 months to study for the exams and I passed each of them the first time taking them. I spent about 1 1/2 per day as an average.
