    Paul,Thanks for your posting, but it is very difficult to provide advice without getting a few more details. Your posting notes that there are “.. big issues…”. What are the specific issues that you are having with the Green Belt course you are taking?
    Best regards,

    -No more than you do.   Do you not realize that you are in violation of forum rules?

    Well let medraw it out for you, Iam in the Air Force nearing my 20 year point. I thought this would be great to pick up before I get out.  I like th econcept and thought this coul dvery well help me in my future endeavors. Yeah I think i bit off a bit more than I could chew here.  Anyway Iam taking the course through Gatline.  Its all online paid about 1475.00 for the course.  I guess iam not doing to well because the structure of the course is a bit kooky.  and the online slides are terrrible.  Not to mention its a fairly new concept for me sort of speak. To answer your question…   Well out of the forum maybe some assistance in how the heck I can pass this.  some formulas to success with it.  And how not having to pay the Air force the 1475.00 !!!they gave me to complete it.  haha.  No really Iam interested as heck, i just cant seem to grasp all the charts and some of the applications.  Iam half way through all the quizzes and I swear I must be the dumbest guy in the world! Iam just getting panicky because i have 6 more quizzes till the online exam.  And of course no Air Force guys havent even heard of Six Sigma. so I have no support there.  See what I mean. Anyway I appreciate any help.

    Paul,Thanks for your posting with clarification about your dilemma. Sorry about your experience with the quality (or rather, lack of quality) of the on-line course. There are good courses out there, and (obviously) others that are not so good.Regarding your situation — you may need some supplemental material and additional thoughts to help you through. I will post some additional material in some later posts, and some of the other Discussion Forum members may have some additional helpful advice, also.
    Often, the statistical portions of these courses are pretty tough (especially on-line, where you cannot ask questions to an instructor). Here is a source that may help (some) with the stats portion of what you need to learn — some sample statistics questions (with answers) to test yourself:
    http://www2.gsu.edu/~dscbms/ibs/qcontent.htmlThese questions are part of database of questions and answers developed under a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). A number of stats topics are covered that are probably part of your on-line Green Belt course, including:–Descriptive Statistics — Basic Probability Concepts — Probability Distributions — Data Collection Methods — Making Inferences about One Population — Hypothesis Testing — Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) –Regression Analysis
    … hope this is helpful to your efforts … will post more in later postings …
    Best regards,

    Paul,Regarding your dilemma:1) The provider: Have you contacted the provider of your on-line course, to register your displeasure (and to see what recourse they offer)? 2) Additional on-line help: There are some other (free) sources on-line for help on some topics that are related to what you are probably studying for the Green Belt, especially statistics. Here is one:The Foothill-De Anza Community College District in California has posted an Open Courseware class regarding “Basic Statistics”, at this site:http://sofia.fhda.edu/gallery/statistics/index.html
    This free “open courseware” class has many features that some other open courseware offerings do not, including embedded video and a a video-assisted instruction module regarding usage of the TI-83 calculator:http://sofia.fhda.edu/gallery/statistics/calculator/calculator.html
    … hope this is helpful … will post more later …

    Paul,… some additional suppliemental material …You may to try to teach yourself the Six Sigma theory material from other sources if your contact with the on-line course provider (Gatlin) does not yield any statisfaction.Here is a link for a free e-book about Six Sigma:http://www.leansigmainstitute.com/downloads/APO_SixSigma.pdf
    (It says “Lean Six Sigma”, but it has very little about “Lean” in it).
    … hope this is helpful …Best regards,

    Hi Paul
    http://www.wiley.com/college/sc/reid/chap6.pdf
    I found this article and the way it is worded makes it a very easy read to get you started. Sorry I don’t have any of the chapters.
     
    One thing I did notice however is that the letters fi have not printed in some words, don’t let this put you off.
     
    Regards

    My friend, I have the answer for you.  Drop me an email at [email protected] and I can tell you what I am currently doing now to get my certification through Master Six Sigma certification through Villanova University…and $7,300 is paid by TA.  I can explain in better detail later.

    Paul, I don’t know if you’re still trying to get through GB or not. Obviously this post took off with a few guys being wise guys & ignoring your inquiry.
    Go to eBooks on this site or opensourcesixsigma.com and buy DMAIC for $100US. It’s the full course with instructor notes. For this addl marginal cost you can have the full course to study at your pace – not an online pace. This should supplement what you’re doing now such that you can make it through.
    Good luck!
