    I am planning to take the exam on Oct 16. Preparations are going on. But not going good.
    Those certified can help or give an idea about the pass percentage or grading system. This will help us in preparing for the exam (at least mentally).

    I have not taken the CSSBB but did take the CQE and the reality is that there are three keys to passing the test: PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE.  According to the timeline, you have about a month’s worth left before the exam, and if you have not finished studying and are not 100% focused on practicing, you are in bad shape.  It’s not a question of actually KNOWING the BOK, but understanding HOW ASQ asks questions and what kind of responses they are looking for.
    There is not actual grade you can get to pass the test.  At least for CQE, you either pass or fail in relation of how everybody else did.  Nevertheless, the minimum grade you should strive for is a 70%.  That gives you more than enough chance to get your certification.

    I have some ideas – perhaps the 3 of us can form an on-line study group?

    The only way to test your knowledge baseline is by practicing.  Every single practice problem of the QCI CSSBB Primer should be answered and understood before doing the test.
    ASQ asks trick questions.  Example:
    What is the standard deviation of the following sample: 3.2, 3.1, 3.3, 3.3, 3.1
    a. 3.2
    b. 0.0894
    c. 0.1
    d. 0.0498
    Solution (extracted from the CQE Primer Solution Text): “In more uncomplicated times, the world understood  that a sample was determined by using n-1 in the divisor, and it was assumed that the sample was taken to make some inference about a population.  However, an errata change after the 1984 test publication stated that this assumption could not be made.  The prediction or inference regarding a population must be spelled out in the question.  Otherwise, the sample is to be considered a complete data set.”
     
    See what I mean?

    George,
    Miranax is right… 
    You have to not only know the material cold but have to be able to handle the very tricky question formats they use.  The good news is that QCI has put a lot of work into their questions to give them the same look and feel as the actual test.  If you can (quickly) handle their questions (primer or disk) you should do ok…
    Best Regards,
    Bob J

    You can use the primer as long as you remove the blue colored question pages.
