    It is relative to the time you put in study and experience with the BOK. Suggest you study and measure against BOK and practice exams from IC.

    It takes you 50 minutes to take a 4 hour exam?
    Is the test really similar to the practice exam on CD from I.C.?

    Norm,
    Thanks for identifying the important set of variables that may explain why I have failed the exam three times in a row. What communication “tool” does six sigma use as an alternative to swearing at the instructor? How many different levels would that communication tool have (grunt, groan, frown?). I would like to create a designed experiment to quantify what percentage of the failure rate can be attributed to “swearing” as opposed to the other three factors that you mentioned.  This will help me identify the best combination of variables to help me optimize the probability of my eventual success. As we all know, we cannot be rigorous enough in analyzing the root causes of defects/failure rates before we move into the improvement phase. How often do I have to retake the exam to make sure that I truly passed it and that this is not just attributable to happenstance causes?

    Quality Council of Indiana has good material. CD, Book and Primer. ASQ also has handbook for six sigma blackbelt. Other than that you should know some basics already if you are appearing for an exam.

    Andy – Be aware.
     
    It’s a stupid requirement – for multiple reasons.
     
    And bad companies make stupid requirements.
     
    But I get it, times are bad and you do what you have to do.

    Ps. – Don’t let the other posters bother you, all (I kid not) every single one of them is incompetent.
